but (AFAICT) this wouldn't solve the issue of someone moving the
source on a remote site and, frankly, i don't see why that's
subversion's problem.

as i read it, an svn:externals reference can be an *absolute* URL. if
someone at that URL starts moving things around, how is subversion
supposed to handle that?

it seems that's a server-side screwup, not a subversion issue.
