Hi Ben,

Thats a good list - Issue 1336 seems to be the closest in functionality and in
fact each one is relevant to some extent, but none covers it entirely.

I would like an issue open for the feature:
"functionality of cvs modules with subversion"

1) intra-tree links (1336-"relative paths")
2) sensible copy/tag semantics for relative links (1336-"relative paths" not
really 1258-"tag externals" which seems more focused about inter-tree)
3) sensible commit semantics for relative links (1167-"recursive commit"
1448-"one connection per external"). Not mentioned is that intra-tree commits
should be merged so that they use a single connection and are atomic.
4) sensible status/diff/etc semantics (959-"svn status") Similary intra-tree
status should be merged (and thus streamy). Also the "X" should be supressed for
internal links.

Looking over that list again, there seems to be quite a mismatch between "real"
external links and internal links so the issue could equally be called
"'svn:internal' directory property".
