Commit on multiple External Folders - any way to make one commit do all?

Currently, I'm using TortoiseSVN and a large repository (4GB) and to
avoid the really slow update on large numbers of files/folders I've set
up a "WorkingSpace" directory with just the bits of the main repository
that are currently of interest as svn:external

This gives me about 6 folders that are from various levels in the repo
but all appear at the top level in the WorkingSpace.
  WorkingSpace/Programming <<< External
  WorkingSpace/Admin <<< External
  WorkingSpace/CollectedFromWeb <<< External

An "Update" on "WorkingSpace" updates all the six externally linked
folders AND Putty.exe Todo.txt

A "Commit" just does the "WorkingSpace" folder and the few files in it
(Putty.exe Todo.txt ...). It lists all the files that need to be
committed in each - this seems to be Tortoise addition as doing a "svn
commit -m "msg .."

I'd really like to be able to commit everything in one hit (so when I
checkout at my other location, there aren't missing files)

Is there any way do do this short of a script that just does and "svn
commit" (or whatever the syntax is) on each of externally linked
folders, one at a time. This isn't have but just seems messy (and
asymmetric :-)

I just tried svn commit -m "msg ..." and it complained about files not
being under version control (eg Desktop.ini) which I don't care about

   svn commit -m "msg .." Programming

did however work happily.

Any way to do all of these commits at once, without scripts?
