At present an svn:externals directory will be ignored, because the
svn_client_status code doesn't descend into such directories. I think
that's the correct behaviour, I assume anyone using svnversion will
want to store the revision for each component separately. If issue
959 is implemented svn_client_status will need to provide a mechanism
to disable descent.
