You can't check out a single file, because Subversion needs to check
out working copies with directory-level granularity in order to have
a place to store the metadata necessary for keeping track of the
files in the working copy (the .svn directory).

That said, you can get a single file out of Subversion, just not as a
working copy (i.e. you won't be able to make changes and commit them
back). To do that, all you need to do is run "svn cat".
