Where is the documentation of the current format? All I can find is in
svn-book.html#svn.advanced.externals where it says:

"its value is a multi-line table of subdirectories (relative to the versioned
directory on which the property is set) and fully qualified, absolute
Subversion repository URLs."

That is clearly imprecise and incomplete (not mentioning revision numbers).
I'd say we need a new section for special properties in the "Reference" section
of the book.
