The idea is good - I would very much like that too.
But: to find out if there are externals below a folder, we'd have to ask
the properties from each and every folder we show separately. Just
right-click on a folder from the TSVN repository and choose "properties"
and you'll see why that's not really user-friendly to do: it just takes
way too long!
