I have practical experience doing this, and it's not that hard. Say you
have a directory structure like:

- project
  - source
  - libs

And you want to import some libraries into libs you simply do something
like:

        svn pe svn:externals /path/to/libs

And in that "file" you insert the references as described in the
book[1]:

        third-party/sounds http://sounds.red-bean.com/repos

Or you might want to check out a speciel revision instead of the head:

        third-party/sounds -r21 http://sounds.red-bean.com/repos

I hope this helps.
