Actually, from where I sit, I hear more complaints about the lack of
commandline support for this new syntax (as opposed to complaints
about deficient svn:externals syntax.) One our of longest-standing UI
criticisms has always been "stop making users type huge URLS to refer
to branches and tags."

So as far as I'm concerned, the 'main' feature here is inventing new
syntax to ease our commandline experience. If svn:externals gets to
use the new syntax too, then great! I feel like this is a cleaner way
to approach the problem.

Maybe maxb/ghudson can chime in with their suggestions and proposals again.
