Extend svn:externals to support files (issue 937)

From: Trent Nelson <tnelson_at_onresolve.com>

Regarding: http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=937
E.g.:
svn:externals:
  bin/tcnative-1.dll http://svn.foo.com/repo/tags/tcnative-1.1.8.dll

I'd really like this feature. So much so, that, given that there hasn't
been any progress on it since it was raised nearly five years ago, I
figured I'd give it a crack myself.

Karl suggested two possible implementations (again, way back in 2002):
either allow svn:externals to refer to files (and handle as dirs are
handled), or change .svn/entries to refer to files in other
repositories.

Is either of these still plausible? I've lurked around the externals
code with these two points in mind and have a few ideas/questions, but
I'd like to hear other subversion developers' thoughts on this issue
first.

        Trent.
