Subversion is about versioning collections of files, not individual
files. It hasn't been possible to check out single files before.


I don't know if 1.5 changes the situation at all.

The reason this hasn't been possible is that Subversion needs a
directory to put its .svn directory into, to store administrative
information about the working copy.
