svn export, checkout, --force and svn:externals

From: André Pönitz <andre_at_wasy.de>

If have a couple of projects, all having some "export" subdirectory
(in all branches & tags) and "import/project1" ... "import/projectn"
subdirectories connected to the "export" directories of other
projects by "svn:externals"

This works as expected, however I am not completely satisfied with
this setup.

First of all, the "import" tree is always read-only and never
should get fed back to the repository, so "svn export" instead
of "svn checkout" would be completely sufficient (and save
considerable disk space...). However, I don't see a way to get
that "export" "connected" the same way as "checkout".

A work around would be to use the setup I have right now +
manually remove the .svn directories in the "import/" tree.
Not nice.

Secondly, ideally I'd like to have all the "import/projectk"
combined in a single "import" directory (regardless of possible
conflicts). For "export" this works by giving the "--force"
option. There seems to be no such thing for "checkout" (and
would be senseless anyway), so the workaround for the first
problem can't even be used with the second.

Any ideas?
