Differing opinions, good:-)

I did not have much trouble with externals up to now, and I use them a
lot. The only issue is that if we want to do a global tag or branch on
related projects, the references must be updated accordingly, so we
scripted it.

So, everybody wants a very big repository with hundred of unrelated
projects put together and dead references everywhere in the source and
outside... and the strangeness of this very discontinuous choice does not
strike anyone but me. Well...
