wc format version bump for file externals?

The file external feature will emulate intra-repository file externals with a
switched file. To properly implement this feature, the svn client will need to
be aware that a switched file is really a file external.

If we don't bump it, then a svn 1.5 client will see the switched file from a 1.6
wc checkout and

1) let the user reswitch it
2) see an 'S' status when it shouldn't
3) automatically update the file even if the svn:externals has a fixed revision

So I think we should bump the wc format, but Karl suggested we discuss this.
