This has been discussed several times on the mailing list, you can
search for "Single File" at http://svn.haxx.se/users/.

Short answer: No, you can't check out a single file for changes.

You can however get the contents of a single file:

svn cat svn+ssh://repos/trunk/file > file

But you can't check changes in to it without checking out the whole
parent directory.
