I'm not sure I follow you, In my case I don't use the maven scm plugin to synchronize the source
code, continuum dos this for me (which is the default behavior).

The maven build is fine, the non-recursive parameter is used by default, it's just that the
scm command is not doing the same.

So just adding an option (checkbox) on the build definition to prevent recursive checkout
would be nice. 

A good bet would be that maven projects of type "pom" should be non recursive in regards to
source code. You could override this later with the above option.

The other way around (sync all then restrict) would leave your build workspace polluted with
unnecessary files.

Part of the problem, of course, is that this is delegated to the maven  
SCM stuff, so this may force a lot of feature-requests back into that  
project.  Not a bad thing, but it's very very easy to over-specify if  
this isn't thought through carefully.
