That is extremely nice. Yet another reason to look forward to 1.7. Can
that be used to prune a working copy back down, getting rid of
folders/files that we no longer want locally?

We make heavy use of sparse checkouts and while the core users were able
to maintain their sparse working copies, the UI was never that
intuitive. Such as using "Update item to revision" dialog in order to
prune a folder back out of the working copy. It wasn't worth
complaining about at the time because we were just so glad that sparse
checkouts were possible in the first place.
