Feature request: Repo-browser to show externals

Hi All,


Not 100% sure if this is the right place to post this, but going by some
of the discussion I've seen as well the website, this is probably my
best bet.


Currently, if an external is linked into a SVN repository there is no
visual evidence of this using the repo-browser. The external is copied
into my WC though.




I have a project with a third-party component which is in a Vendor tag &
linked into my project using an external property. The component is
copied to my WC when I checkout my project, but there is no visual
evidence of it's existence in the repo-browser. As far as the
repo-browser is concerned, the external does not exist.


It would be nice to have a "virtual folder", maybe a folder icon with a
chain link to show that it's an external. Obviously clicking on it
shouldn't do anything, it's just a visual icon to show the relationship
in the project. This is only for the repo-browser, not for Explorer
(doesn't make sense in explorer, although maybe a link icon in Explorer
would be nice, but not necessary).
