Yes!

Probably not. I think this is one of the most common uses of
externals, which happens to currently break atomicity. A fix for
broken behaviour doesn't need an option to disable it.
(Yep, I know it's not broken if the svn:external points to another
repository....)

AFAIR no problem there, except that you need to hand the API a list of
files instead of pointing to a top-level directory. Which I believe
TSVN does anyway?
