There is no such command at the moment. Subversion's handling of
nonrecursive checkouts is currently rather poor. When it's fixed such
a command could be added, but I don't know if anyone's planning on
doing that any time soon.

I'd suggest simply checking out tags separately from any other working
copy, one at a time, rather than doing a nonrecursive checkout of the
top level and pulling in tags when you need them.
