Simon talked about the working copies pulling the svn:external folders when you update your working copy. More important points are:
- svn:externals work best (only) when then refer to a folder, not files -- that is they define a folder to create, and the source of that folder's contents.
- you can create the svn:externals and the target folders in any order, but it is easier to incrementally test the working copy updates if the target folders exist first.

What is your intended application?
