TSVN commit is actually equivalent to a series of SVN commands. The
first part which populates the commit file list is 'svn status -v'. This
is probably the bit you want to skip externals in. But I see no easy way
of adding this to our commit dialog without adding (yet) another context
menu entry for 'Commit special' similar to Update/Update to revision.
