pruned directory checkouts

Dear all,

'svn propset svn:ignore' I like very much.

For particular machines, I do not need to have a complete
project checked out. To save space and to accelerate updates
and commits, I was wondering if there exists a mechanism
(property?) to make svn client stop considering subdirectories
of given projects.


    svn checkout projectA

    results in a directory structure


    on some machines, I do not need to have, for example, the
    directories dir3.[12] with all subdirectories, on some I do not
    need dir2, while on others, I do want to have all of them.

What I was thinking of was a WC-local property that stops
considering/processing for given patterns of subdirectories.

Is this possible to achieve with today's mechanisms?

If not, might this be a feature of future subversion releases?

What do you think?

Thanks in advance.
