OK. Here are a couple of thoughts based on my initial use of the file external
(1) Provide a slightly modified icon overlay for external files/folders.
It could be something like the current normal and modified icons with a small
white X (for external) instead of the check mark.
(2) Provide a context menu option to automate the process of adding external
files/folders to a versioned directory of a checked-out project. Basically this
would add the appropriate svn:externals entry to the project's Properties.
For example, given a checked out project with sub-directories:
From the sub2 directory, the user could select a context menu option to add an
external. The process could first create the string '^/project/sub1/sub2 '.
(There may be a better option than ^/.) The user could then provide the name/URL
of the external file/directory or, better yet, be given the option of selecting
the file/folder from a checked-out working copy of the desired external. This
string could be appended to that above and then added to the project's
svn:externals list. The user could also have the option of doing an automatic
update of the directory.
Of course this same basic idea could be applied in reverse. Given a directory
with an external file, the user could have a context menu option for deleting
the file by erasing the entry from the Properties list. This could be a
work-around for the current svn in that external files cannot be deleted without
erasing the entries from the project properties.
