The one obvious feature I didn't see mentioned there: an "external"
that is actually "internal" should participate in the atomicity of
non-external operations.

For example... I didn't bother to define externals in our new
Subversion repository to replace the CVS "modules" because then I
don't get atomic checkout/update, as far as I can tell from the
manual. And since that's one of the major benefits of Subversion over
CVS, it seemed rather pointless to throw that away. With "internals"
I could provide the analog of CVS modules *and* get the proper
Subversion style semantics.
