Before looking at the details some questions about the issue space:

How do you handle externals that are stored in svn:externals many directory
levels up? (Or even defined from above the current external)

How do you handle externals between multiple repositories?

How do you avoid infinite recursion (when an svn:external directly or
indirectly includes its parent)?

I'm not sure if there is a good and/or complete implementation possible for
this 'problem'/'issue'?
[What limits should we expect from an implementation?]

Thanks for asking on the list before filling in the details.
