I use svn:externals only for intra-repostory "linking". My needs would be
met by the equivalent of a "svn ln" command. This seems like a feature
that isn't creeping too far from cp/mv in my mind.

I didn't see any ENHANCEMENT issues open for a 'svn ln', and I'm having
trouble searching the mailing list at the moment. Is there any reason
something like this would be a really bad idea?

On svn:externals.. I'm already using scripts to work around some
svn:externals limitations (like tagging & thumbtacking externals to
specific revisions). It would be a bit messy, but scripting everything
wouldn't kill me. Though, in my case at least, something like 'svn ln'
would work better.
