Checking out individual files

Good evening, all.

I am curious about something ... also getting complained at by some
of our users about it and I need to have something to reply ...

With Subversion, you can check out whole repositories, and you can
check out individual directories within the repository ... but you
(apparently) can't check out individual files within a directory.

I'm told that this was a design decision made by the Subversion architects.

My question was ... What was the reasoning behind this decision?

If you can check out a subdirectory within a repository without
having to check out the whole repository, why not also then be able
to check out an individual file within a subdirectory?

Eric
