svn:externals with non-absolute paths - possible?

Hi everybody,

One of the things I really do like on subversion is the svn:externals
property which is in many ways a lot more flexible as the CVS modules
concept. However, one point really makes me headaches: svn:externals
requires to give an absolute URL to the external repository, which does
not contain just the path, but also the protocol to use and (for some
protocols) even the username. This is bad, as different users should be
able to access the compount project by different protocols. Take for
instance a projectA that contains a svn:external link to another
projectB. All internal project team members access the repository
using the svn+ssh protocol, but external project team member use https
via WebDAV. Is there any way to set the svn:external link in a way, that
it resolves to an svn+ssh://... link for internal team members, but to a
https://... link for external team members? Maybe using environment
variables in the external definition?

How do you solve these kind of problems?

With kind regards

Daniel Lohmann
