Re: external definitions - flatten

'svn checkout' only works on directories, not single files. And the
svn:externals feature is essentially nothing but a list of extra
directories to checkout. There are plans, I believe, to make
svn:externals able to checkout a single file someday. Until then,
there's no workaround that I can think of.
