I can say that supporting externals should be a configuration option.
However, there's not really a good way to make svnwcsub deal with
externals because for it to really work properly it needs to know
about changes on the external.

You're pointing at a tag so I'm guessing you probably don't care about
updates happening on the external itself. I.E. when you change it
it's likely to be to change to external definition.

There are a couple of alternative configurations that might be helpful
for you for the time being that I put on the bug.

Not sure why that's important, svnwcsub doesn't use our APIs and just
drives the client.
