In our project, we define the revision for each external (a very handy way
to achieve something like a tag). Usually we use external for library
modules and so the developer of the library module will update the revision
of the external whenever the new library code is stable. Therefore for
normal users, we do not need the latest code. It would be nice to be able to
see (in Explorer) which directory is an external and which one is normal
directory. I guess this can be achieved via the SVN URL field.

Now I see the SVN Revision and URL field being updated in Explorer. I will
also use the short URL as well.
