There's a reason why no other repo browser has this feature.
To find out if there are any svn:externals present, we'd have to read
the properties of every folder in the repository. That's slow, very
slow. Because it requires a server request for every folder.

If you don't want automatic merging, set the svn:mime-type property to
something other than text (e.g. application/octet-stream).
Imagine for a moment what you're asking here:
* user starts updating a big working copy
* about 50 files got modified, 10 of those are modified by the user
* during the update, a dialog pops up 10 times warning about a merge
The only thing you would get with that: users complaining. And after the
third dialog, users won't even read the dialog box anymore but simply
click ok to get rid of it.
It wouldn't help at all - it would only hurt.

Use a nightly build from trunk.
