you look at the properties of the directory you can find out if it
contains externals.

Stefan, TSVN's primary coder, responded that he'd like such a feature

properties of each directory in the repository, which would heavily slow
down the browsing process.

So I think from a TSVN perspective there's no easy way to solve this.
But maybe something can be added to Subversion itself? Would it be
possible for Subversion to indicate to a client that a folder contains
externals, without requiring the extra round-trip to fetch the
