Word! So many things are difficult just because of that. If Kirk was
Subversion, instead of "Khaaaan!!" he would scream "Externaaaaals!!"

...and then there are also the externals defined in entire ancestral
*working copies*. That is the real nightmare. Like
svn propset svn:externals "
^/src1 X1
^/src2 X1/X2" .
[...]
cd X1
svn list --include-externals
Does it show X2? No? :)
