I think there's a big hole in our idea of "svn:externals as a
replacement for cvs modules".

In CVS, when you checkout a tag of a module, all of the dependent
submodules are checked out as if you had passed the same tag argument
(-r MY_TAG).

But if I make a branch-copy of an svn project, its svn:externals
property doesn't change at all. It will still checkout the externals
from the original /trunk or whatever.
