[Feature Request] Turn off descending into svn externals

I would like to suggest that a new feature is added to tortoise svn in
order to make it more flexible to any repository configuration.

In my configuration I keep the boost library in my repository under a
separate folder and link to it using svn:externals in my projects that
need it. I do this to prevent having to have other users download
boost to run and compile my apps.
I would like the ability to turn off tortoise's default behavior to
search all externals for updates each svn update and commit. When
boost is included in that process, it can take minutes on older
machines. I would like to have the original intended functionality
from the svn doc (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07s04.html)
where in order to update or commit an external, I would have to
explicitly use commit or update on that external.
