I suppose, the format of an external is known at the moment of a checkout: it is either old-fashioned "path url", or new-fashioned "url path".
If it is old-fashioned, just treat a backslash as a directories separator.
I don't know the internals of svn, but it should be simple in the implementation :)

Yes, the script would help.
I hope, we don't have old repositories with read-only access :)
