I don't think that adding just an empty .svn folder would work. And
simply creating a dummy wouldn't work properly either: you can't just
pretend that something is versioned: either it is versioned or it isn't
- there's nothing in between (no half-versioned).

Why do you use a subfolder anyway? You could create a versioned folder
'foo' yourself, then attach all externals directly below that folder (as
TSVN does with the 'ext' folder).
