The TortoiseSVN example was meant to be an example of a repository that
was using svn:externals and how it was structured. It had nothing to do
with the tool itself.

You would need to checkout ProjA. Then say you wanted to have a folder
named "common" beneath it that was really a symlink to ProjA. To do this,
you need to set the svn:externals property on the ProjA folder in your WC.
  Then commit the change. Then when you run svn up or svn co, it will
create the common folder from ProjD.
