Re: Externals in 1.6 - backslashes are prohibited

Hi all,

The advice to replace backslashes '\' with forward slashes '/' for "nested externals" is fine for on-going developments, but our repository has hundreds of Tags using backslashes for "nested externals", like:

Source -r 12345 https://svn.xxx.xxx/Repo/Source
Source\SubProj -r 12345 https://svn.xxx.xxx/ExtraRepo/SubProj

And now they are all broken. It is a disaster! :(

I propose to allow usage of backslashes '\' for old-formatted externals (dir url).
It is a matter of backward compatibility.
And it surprised me much that such compatibility wasn't preserved :(

Is it possible to fix this behavior in the nearest future version of TortoiseSVN?
I didn't check the behavior in 1.6.6, but in 1.6.5 and 1.6.4 the compatibility is broken.
