CVS Modules / SVN Externals

Hello all,

I'd love to switch my developers to svn, they're eager
too. however, there are two things that are currently
stopping us. 1. the conversion time is way too long.
 I've gove a 3 GB repo that's taking days to run. and
2. the svn externals support isn't quite the same as
the cvs modules. I can live without 1. ( maybe I
can convince them to start from scratch. ) but I can't
live without 2. our cvs modules file is _huge_, and
we have tons of dependancies on common code, internal
and external libraries.

This wouldn't really be a problem, except that we tag
and branch on the cvs modules by name, and from what
I've read, the externals property won't exactly work
when moving things around in the branches & tags dirs.

Will there be something similar to the cvs modules
file that will work well with branching/tagging &
including common code?
