Yes, I am mostly on Windows.

I know how to do tricks, but it is harder to teach users that they
have to use shell programming here.

I personally would prefer that svn cleanup recursed into externals automatically
(as does svn up etc,) and to have "--exclude-externals" flag.

TortoiseSVN already has this recursing feature, so either it is already in API,
or Stefan has implemented a clever workaround around it.
