Currently, it simply ignores all externals completely.

I'm wondering: how would you have SubWCRev handle those externals?

Case 1: externals refer to HEAD
Usually, in such a case there's at least one file in the main part which
has already the highest revision number. If not and the highest revision
number is somewhere in the externals, what would that revision number
represent? Definitely not the 'project status'?

Case 2: externals refer to specific revision
In that case, the highest revision number is in the main part and
SubWCRev doesn't need to crawl the externals at all.
