Eek. The file externals feature came about because it just so happened that
we supported switches of schedule-add files. I really, *really* don't want
us making those kinds of feature decisions in the future on the basis of,
"Well, gosh, it sorta seems to work." Let's try to be more intentional
about such things, shall we?

-1, but let's revisit the idea in some post-1.7 release!
