svnversion and svn:externals

Hi all,

I'm using svnversion (among others) to include information about the
state of the working copy into my application.

That worked fine as long as I did not use svn:externals, as svnversion
ignores them when parsing the working copy.

That is, when there are changes in the externals only this information
will not make it into my application.

I know that I can obtain the relevant information from svn status -v,
but ...

A more user-friendly would be to enable svnversion to also give
infomation about externals.
For compatibility external parsing could be enabled with --verbose or
an other appropriate command line switch.

Any other opinions on that?
Should I take the proposal to the dev list?

Lorenz
