Completely off tangential.... What if one guy uses ra_svn and another
guy uses ra_dav, does that mean you can't use externals? Or that in
order to use it, they have to be able to use the whatever externals is.
I guess it's a limitation of externals.

What about when you do a switch from via the fix to issue 951? Should
it switch a directory that was checked out via 951? If it doesn't, then
won't parts of your WC be broken? I suppose you could go do the rewrite
in each external directory, but I could see that as being a pain if you
used externals extensively to map different directories.

It would seem that externals could have bad interaction with mixed ra_
types, or with issue 951. I've never played with them, so maybe it'd be
trival to overcome.
