I hope so...

You suggested this strategy in the issue tracker (your strategy with
number, my attempt at solution between):

1. while crawling the working copy state, collect all the externals
definitions (pretty much as-is) *and the repository URLs of the directories on
which they are set*.

The thing is we weren't crawling the wc collecting externals when we
were doing a merge. We passed NULL for traversal_info.

2. do the update/switch, remembering any changes to externals definitions that
come down from the server.

We remember all externals, not just the changed ones.

3. compare the pre-op externals definitions with the post-op ones, and for any
that have changed (been added, been removed, or been modified *paying attention
to changes in the repos URL of the container directory*) do the appropriate thing.

libsvn_client/externals.c is capable of detecting changes in the repos
URL of the container directory.

I tried a _lot_ of things before I wrote this patch and I agree that it
looks too easy.
