I tried that, but it seems that svn:external only works with
directories, not individual files. In other words, if I set
svn:externals on proj1/lib to

   servlet.jar {repos}/packages/servlet.jar

and svn up, I get the error

   svn: Name does not refer to a filesystem directory
   svn: Attempted to create entry in non-directory parent

and a directory named proj1/lib/servlet.jar/ is created (0.33.1).

Of course, I could set

   lib {repos}/packages

on the proj1 directory, but I would like to put libraries into that
packages directory that aren't required by all of the projects in my
repository. I was just looking for a way to save space, but I can
definitely live with how it works now.
