That doesn't exist. But what you can do is check out a sparse working
copy. Read about it here:


It may take a couple svn commands to set up your working copy so if
you expect to need to set up new working copies of this type often,
you could automate it with a script.

Note you don't need more than a single "svn checkout" command. The
subsequent commands will be "svn update".
