...and even if there weren't you still wouldn't have to checkout 30 gig
to do the same with chacl (that is unless you only have a single file
in your module and that is 30GB big).
Just do the checkout non-recursively or better yet, only check out a
single file from that module. The only thing you really need is the
sandbox metadata and that will get created as soon as Checkout has to
create a directory on your machine.
