This is unfortunately not possible. WebSVN needs a full copy of the
repository with its history, not a svn checkout, and that can't be
trimmed to a subtree. Or maybe you *can* extract a subtree, but then
you can't keep that in sync with new changes that appear in the master
repository. Even in git that's a giant pain.
