Re: Question about externals

That's a bit unfortunate, since I like to use externals to link to SDK's in
my repository to save space on the server side. I don't want each of my
projects to have its own copy of the same SDK. In addition, I like for each
of my projects to use external links to link to engine files, which could
change while working on one project. If the engine changes in one project,
if I update other projects I want the engine changes to update that working
copy as well.

I think it would be a great idea to perhaps have external links and internal
links. External links could act as they do now, however the internal links
would be designed to link to the same repository, thus they could show up in
the commit dialog.
