The only externals I've ever used, was intra-repository. I used them as
a "symlink", to map the same part into different projects (a common set
of makefiles and XSL style sheet for several DocBook XML documents).

And it annoyed me that I had to specify the externals with a full path,
because that would break, if I eg. moved the repo to a different server.
