when would you use "--depth infinity"

   perusing the section on "sparse directories," and i can immediately
see the value of depths empty, files and immediates, but when would i
use "--depth infinity"? as i read it, that's the default depth for a
checkout anyway, right?

   i *can* see where a depth of "infinity" would be useful, if you
were resetting the current sticky depth, as in:

   $ svn update --set-depth infinity

but that's using "--set-depth", not "--depth". is there an example
command where you would actually use an option of "--depth infinity"?
