svn:externals sounds like it fits the bill.

Take a look at the section on Externals Definitions in
Chapter 7 ("Advanced Topics") in the Book.

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07s03.html

What I'd like to know is the "best practice" for migrating from
a regular folder to an svn:external. Is it a four-part
[remove, commit, add external property, commit] process?

I've tried doing it all in one go in the past, and found that
updates don't work as expected. (haven't done it for a while,
I will try to reproduce later)

Any pointers?
