Yes, you are absolutely right. You can check out any subdirectory
on its own.

If you have standard "trunk", "branches" and "tags", it's typical to
checkout just, say, "trunk" and maybe also "branches/something",
rather than the entire repository. Those are just subdirs...

Subversion doesn't support "partial" checkouts of a given directory
very well right now. But it looks like that feature is being actively
developed, so hopefully a future release (1.5 maybe? hopefully!)
will support "partial" checkouts better. (IIUC the feature is only
for omitting subdirs from a checkout, not files, though.)
