Maybe I need to explain myself better. As far as I understand it takes
two steps to know if a directory contains one or more externals:

1. The first step is needed to get the directory structure (i.e. "svn

2. The second step is needed to get the properties. Only then you can
tell if and what externals a directory contains.

Step 2 needs to be performed for each directory returned at step 1. So
this is very costly.

What I'm suggesting is an enhancement of the first part, so that it not
only returns the directory structure information, but also some extra
meta-information for each directory. In my specific case I'd like to see
the svn:externals info returned, but maybe some other properties could
also be included. I think this would speed certain things up.
