multiple svn:externals property for the same directory

Hello list,

I have, what I believe is an RTFM problem - try as I may however, I
can't find
what I'm looking for.

The problem:

We have several projects in one repository like so:


What we'd like to do is to keep our libraries in *one* place (under the
'lib' project above)
and 'llink' (or whatever) the lib directory under the different projects
to one *or more*
subdirectories of the 'lib' project. An example:

Say, using the above setup, proj1 requires http-libs, but not the
ftp-libs, nor the ssh-libs and
also say that proj2 requires the ftp-libs and the ssh-libs but not the

Ok - so far so good. On proj1 I can set the svn:externals property to
"lib [url of http-libs]".
What I *can't* do is for proj2, set the svn:externals property to
something like:
lib [url of ftp-libs]
lib [url of ssh-libs]

Well, I *can* set it so - but it doesn't do what I'd like. In the above
case, the url of ftp-libs is
used and ssh-libs is completely ignored.

Of course, it could be that I'm going about this all wrong. Any pointers
would be greatly

Thanks in advance,
Curt Galloway
