Also interesting in this context: in svn <= 1.6 one can only make
things sparse with directory granularity (i.e. you have to
include/exclude entire directories, you cannot do this with individual
files). In the upcoming 1.7 version, I believe it will be possible to
exclude individual files. I'm not sure this will help you accomplish
what you want, but somehow it sounds relevant :-).
