At the moment no, although it has been discussed and many people would
like to see it in the future. One current work around is to have an
empty directory somewhere in your repository, and after users check
out a working copy have them use 'svn switch' to switch directories
they don't need to the empty dir. Of course, this is rather useless
if you have directories that are too big to check out in the first
place, but it can help if all you're looking to do is save some disk
space after that initial checkout.
