[bzr-svn] track specific directories only

within a Subversion repository my work is limited to a specific
sub-directory, say the top-level directory "manual". With Subversion I
can checkout this specific directory,
svn co url/trunk/manual
and don't have to "pull" changes that take place in other (probably high
traffic) top-level directories.
The reason I don't want to see other peoples non-manual related changes
is that I have a narrow band dial-up connection. Since with Subversion
I can't work off-line, I'm interested in tracking the repository via Bazaar.
So my question is, can bzr-svn track specific directories to minimize
traffic? To my understanding, the answer is no, but I'd love to be
proven wrong. What I have found in the docs is that for bzr-svn a
subversion server v1.5 is recommended (currently it's v1.4.3) and bzr
can do lightweight checkouts. However, I can't see how both would help
solving my problem. BTW, doing a full checkout only once would be OK.
Can Bazaar & bzr-svn do what I'm looking for?
