I would naturally assume that 'svn ls' behaves the same as 'svn export' in
these situations.

 - externals defined outside the subtree which is being listed don't
   get processed.

 - externals which point to other repositories get listed from those
   repositories.

 - infinite recursion runs infinitely. :-) That's not ideal, I
   know, but it is consistent with what happens today, if I'm not
   mistaken. Any improvements we can make here for export/checkout/
   update/etc. would likely help the list case, too.
