[RFC] Ability to add external directories as exported paths

Hi there,

I have not searched for this topic, but I have been reading this list for the last few months.

So my idea is, to have a way to checkout certain directories as a blunt non-versioned copy.

For example:

\---- src
\---- lib

I'd suggest a new property, something like svn:exports and internal format as svn:externals that is
applied to trunk/ above marking lib as exported directory.
        svn co URL/trunk work/trunk
 will create:
\---- .svn
\---- src
      \--- .svn
\---- lib

(i.e. lib will not have .svn subdirectory)

/lib will (manually or automagically) be ignored (added to svn:ignore as afirst step?) when committing.

On another hand if one checkouts trunk/lib explicitly s/he should be able to commit the changes.

The plus side:
        there are files that almost never change (libraries)
        no need for double space in the working directory
        less information to process (server/client)

The minus side:
        more complex
        somebody has to write the code :-)

Tell me what you think.
