Ian,

I finally got around to understanding and testing this patch. The patch
fixes the status problem, but I cannot get operations like commit, or show
history to work for the externals folders because of the "unversioned"
folder in the middle of the chain. Is that a problem? It is solvable?

I am just wondering what value it will bring to add decorator support if
none of the Subversion actions work.

Mark
