Hi Neels.  Brief response.

Looks like a good improvement.

svn_wc__committable_external_info_t: Use the new 'svn_kind_t' instead of svn_node_kind_t.

svn_client_commit6(): Could you extract the main chunk of added code as a separate function?  That would help me (the reader) quickly understand how much of the local state it does *not* touch.

harvest_committables(): Would the 'is_explicit_target' parameter be better named something like 'include_file_externals'?  I'm not sure if that would better reflect its purpose in that function; I haven't got my head around it well enough, so just asking.

svn_client_commit6(): In the doc string, of instead of "If A and B, all file respectively dir externals as defined ...", I suggest "If A and/or B, all file and/or dir externals (respectively) as defined by ...". Rationale: "respectively" isn't used as a conjunction word in English: <http://www.transblawg.eu/index.php?/archives/870-Resp.-and-other-non-existent-English-wordsNicht-existente-englische-Woerter.html>.

In the same doc string: mention the TODO about --depth=immediates skipping dir externals, that you documented inside the function.

svn_wc__committable_externals_below(): Document the 'immediates_only' parameter.
