improvement request: smarter update behaviour for externals

Hi everyone,

in our project we are using a lot of externals. Updating the whole project
is a lot of pain because all the externals are alway fetched from the server
even if they aren't changed.
All the externals are relative paths pointing to some other file in the
Instead of always fetching all externals, tortoise could check whether the
external path is a relative path or not, and if it is, tortoise could check
whether the file has changed or not an if it's not the case Tortoise doesn't
have to fetch the external again.

What i wanna say is: In such a case, Tortoise has all the information to
decide wheter it has to update an external or not and therefore could speed
up the whole process a lot.

What do you think about this idea? Or is perhaps possible to enforce such a
behaviour by some secret configuration?

Best regards

Manuel Müller
