RE: Using svn switch --relocate does not change svn.externals properties.

It also appears that svn switch --relocate doesn't recurse into
directories from externals.
"Svn switch" works recursively, however if you have an external
directory you have to know where they are. (There doesn't appear to be a
simple way to find them) change directory to where they are and do
another relocate for each one.
A simpler appraoch would be to have svn switch perform the operation
resursively changing any directories as they go.
