Ah, I must have missed when you explained that exception. Thanks for
reiterating. However, I don't necessarily agree that externals under the
same repository don't appear when they're not directly under a versioned
folder. Is there a specific reason for this? Would this be a question for
the Subversion mailing list?

In any case, I understand how externals work now and I appreciate everyone
taking the time to make things clearer for me.
