I would guess only 5% - most externals are from different repositories.
Just look at the ext folder in TSVN. With your suggestion, the user
would have to first check out those projects, then drag them to the ext
folder and then the next update would fetch those projects again.

I'd rather have a better UI for setting properties. One UI for each
known/special property so users won't have to know the syntax.
