Karl,
Thanks a lot for your quick response! It's good to know that the problem
is already discussed by the svn developers (of course, I should have
found the already existing issue entry...) Version 1.5 is a lot more
concrete than I dared to hope :-)

One last suggestion: Relative URLs should be possible even between
different repositories (as long as they reside under some common folder,
of course, otherwise there is no relation between them). If projectA and
projectB are actually different repositories it should stille be
possible to define something like

svn propset svn:externals ../projectB/trunk projectB
https://server/repos/projectA/trunk

or even better, if we understand a leading / as the current repositories
root:

svn propset svn:externals /../projectB/trunk projectB
https://server/repos/projectA/trunk

So long

Daniel
