svn:externals

Is there any way, or would it be possible to add a feature to
svn:externals, to have a URI be based on the current repository?

- Have the method be the same as the parent repository. For
  example, we use https:// for commits, but allow anonymous read
  over http://. However, svn:externals currently forces us to
  pick one.

This could be generalized to allow the following, which are low
priority.

- Have the path be based on the parent repository. This would
  allow tagging versions to work more easily across external
  repositories. It's possible to work around this by changing the
  svn:external property after tagging (actually branching in this
  case).

- Have the hostname be the same as the parent repository. This is
  useful when moving repository groups to a different host, but
  this is just a low priority wishlist item.
