SVN does have the theoretical capacity to do that, via a nonrecursive
checkout. However as stated earlier currently that feature is broken.

A workaround could be to use svn:external URLs, as someone else already
posted. So for each logical grouping of modules, create a folder whose
sole purpose is to contain the necessary svn:external references to the
"real" modules. It's a little trickier to branch only one of the
modules in this case, however.
