I use both CVS and Subversion, and have no problems doing the things
you mention (except the single file checkout), assuming that you
mean "working copy" where you say "sandbox", and that by "checking
out a single subdirectory on a different branch" you mean "updating
a single subdirectory to a different branch".
 Subversion doesn't allow this. I have never needed this feature,
although I can see it can make all the difference if you store
extremely large files in the repository, or the directory structure
is under-developed. Luckily, Subversion allows you to copy and move
versioned items freely and without the lossage that's inevitable
when you move files in a CVS repository.
