No it won't, during checkouts Subversion retrieves and locally saves
all the files it needs for the checked path and revision and stores
them regardless of future use. It currently simply can't know what you
plan to do with the working copy.

What's the size of your working copy that you are concerned about it?
Maybe you should use an export rather than a working copy? Depending
on your use case you can simply sync exports using rsync or such from
a machine where working copy size doesn't matter this much.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
