Parallelising SVN Checkout

Hi all,

Has anybody had any success in parallelising Subversion checkouts in the
past on a subfolder level
to improve performance at all?

By this I mean using svn sparse directories with --depth intermediates to
produce a skeleton structure,
such as:

* subfoldera - handled by a checkout thread
* subfolderb - handled by a checkout thread


then forking a process/starting a thread to svn update the subfolders?
 Does this make sense from a
performance point of view or is the bottleneck of disk I/O always
hit pretty early on by doing this?


I've done this with a Python script and the multiprocessing module (and
daemon processes) so far. I
just wanted to check to see if there was an existing solution to this.

Many thanks,
