normal behavior or bug ? (svn:externals on a non-recursive checkout)

Hi,

alhya ~/kde/svn/% svn co --non-recursive
https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kde-i18n
.....
Checked out revision 410459.
alhya ~/kde/svn/% cd kde-i18n
alhya ~/kde/svn/kde-i18n% svn propget svn:externals
admin https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kde-common/admin
alhya ~/kde/svn/kde-i18n% svn up admin
At revision 410459.
alhya ~/kde/svn/kde-i18n% ls admin
ls: admin: No such file or directory

svn up normal_subdir works fine though.

so basically you have no way to update from a svn:externals if it was
not checkouted at the first shot.

This is problematic for KDE translators people for example who need this
kind of feature (because kde-i18n handles many gigabytes of datas and
nobody wants to fully checkout it ;) and the build system is hold in an
svn:externals reference...(KDE people would : cd kde-i18n; svn up
your_team_language to checkout their language only and svn up admin to
get the build system which is shared by all KDE modules)

so, it is a bug or a feature ? :)

Cheers,
Mik
