I think oxygen could live with that. Does this happen automagically the 
way svn:externals does?

For that matter, I wish git would support partial checkouts, at least 
the kind that pick one directory deeper into the tree... (I can somewhat 
understand not having the granularity of perforce where you can pick 
certain files, or even /exclude/ certain files, though I have to admit 
that such granularity can be quite nice at times.)
