> Subversion currently supports some mechanisms for selectively building
> and populating a working copy, including sparse directory support and
> externals definitions. What Subversion lacks is a handy way to be told —
> in one easy step — to go off and make use of those underlying features
> to build a working copy that looks some specific way. Imagine being able
> to tell new developers on your project to checkout a working copy using
> some pre-formulated specification which results in an automated sparse
> checkout that includes your trunk, branches, and then various branches
> for the currently maintained versions of your software
> (branches/SOME-VERSION), instead of having to tell them to first do a
> --depth=empty checkout of the root, then a --set-depth=infinity update
> of trunk and branches, then..
