Hello Garrett,

Let's don't.

I need it. And i think if you programming object code or php you need it.
Or another simple way to use it.

I had always used modules with generic library used by several
projects at once but not with the same version.
Now i'm working with php and i'm using modules for the common objects
(database access...) used by my sites.

So the svn:externals is a good idea. I'm new in the SVN world and maybe
there is other way around to achieve the same functionality.

The only real drawback i see is that export didn't seem to care about

But if you give me a workaround as simple i take it ;-)
