It's not that bad. Checkout TSVN trunk from URL, checkout externals from
URL. That's only 2 checkouts.

Mostly, yes. But in this case all the externals point to tags, not live
development branches, so they only need updating when the svn:externals
value changes to a different tag. Don't you get bored when you run
update on trunk, checking for updates to subversion which you know
aren't there?

I would expect the nightly build to update every time because it's done
by a cron job which doesn't care about waiting an extra minute.
