This issue is coming up again and again. Are there any plans about a
new property that is designed for this kind of requests, like
"svn:internals" or a smarter "svn:externals" property that would
accepts relative paths inside the same repository (so they survive
branching and tagging)? It is not the first time that I would like
something that fits the CVS virtual modules (were they called that
way?) more closely than an svn:externals...
