Explaining my -0 on the r32762 group in STATUS

Blair, in r32673 you added some logic and related error messages for
externals definitions. I gave a -0 on backporting that change (and its
related changes), listing the reason as: 'don't use "old style" and "new
style" in error messages'. I wanted to give you a heads-up on dev@ so this
would catch your attention.

To be clear, I'm fine with the logical changes made. But ignoring the fact
that they should be hyphenated, I don't think "old style" and "new style"
are altogether descriptive terms. What happens if we change the format
again in Subversion 1.7 -- "new new style"? I think you can see where I'm
coming from.

Is there a better way to identify the two versions of the externals
definition syntax?
