Oh I see. We must have been miscommunicating.

The only reason for that is convinience.

It became inconvenience for me...

In what cases would you be forced to check that out?

Since I tried to build boson 0.12, which is unreleased and the only
place to get the orig tarball from was to check it from SVN. Since SVN
is capable of cheking out only directories, I was forced to checkout
130MB of orig tarballs, instead of only getting one file of 2.2 MB.
