Yes, we use externals for 'proper' externals in another repo, and for
links to common code in the same repo. For the proper externals, on a
copy we'd like to be able to have the -r automatically added to the
external, but with the externals in the same repo, a copy would be required.

Currently we have to do this manually for all our externals when
branching for a release which isn't that usable.

Cheers
