I can confirm that using Windows style path separators in the
svn:externals directly names, does what you would expect/want on
Windows, but on a Mac the folders are created at a single level with
the backslash character in the name of the directory itself. For
that reason I don't like putting multiple levels in a single
externals definition.

What I haven't tried is if the standard unix path separator works as
expected when you check out on Windows.
