Hello John,

Our environment is a Windows 2K3 Server and Windows XP desktop, running Subversion with Apache (https).

After Les Mikesell confirmed the use of externals for the common part, I thought it might be possible to maintain such a
nested structure in the repository and use even more externals referring to parent directories to be used. But in this
way, I might end up with lots of external references. However, if it offers me the advantages of Subversion while
preserving (much of) the current advantages, it is probably worth taking a shot.

Is there anyone that uses (many) externals who could warn me up-front for some pitfalls?
Is there something I should certainly not overlook?
