One way to do this is to do an 'svn export'. But that will mean that it will
not be a working copy where you can make changes to files and commit. If you
want to make changes by having a working copy, AFAIK, there is no way to do
it. You could try 'check out' of selective directories and 'export' of the
rest of them, if that is possible.
