	That's really a layout issue.  You put the trunk, branches, and 
tags, "somewhere".  If you put them all under the same parent, and check 
out the parent, then sure, you get a lot.  If we want to avoid that 
problem, we need to find a layout with better "parents" so you if you grab 
the right parent(s), you get only what you want and nothing else.

	So I guess the place to start is, what do we want you to get (and
want you to not get) in a single checkout?

	I'm also not tied to using a single "parent", since I always use 
Maven to checkout anyway, so we could have 20 separate dirs it checks out 
for different modules -- one to get the main Maven scripts and admin 
stuff, then you run that to grab the correct configuration of everything 
else that you're after.
