Working Copy at multiple levels

From: Kit Marshall <kit_at_crystalmoments.net>

I am using Subversion to track changes to websites that I am working
on. The sites are all on the Apache web server and in the svn repository
as well and I don't always keep the entire sites locally on my pc. What
I'm attempting to do is check out something like
repos/siteroot/public_html/clients/portfolio and work on that directory
but then be able to check out repos/siteroot/public_html/aboutus and
work on that folder and possibly repos/siteroot/includes as well (for
example). But this causes there to be a working copy at each level I
checked out which in turn causes problems adding new files or
updating/committing code changes.

I realize that if I check out repos/siteroot and get the entire site then I
could work at any level without issues but this would require me to have
the entire site locally (not the end of the world but I was trying to avoid
this). Am I just working against the intentions of Subversion or is there
some easier way to work in different areas of a project without having
the entire project locally and without using the
"check out/modify/commit/delete working copy" method?

Thanks for your help!
