Bah-humbug on an 'svn:internals' and svn:externals in general. Working

>svn ln -s svn://server/other_repos/trunk logging
>svn ln -s /tags/utils.1.0.0/utils.jar utils.jar

>svn ls logging utils.jar widget.jar
         logging -> svn://server/other_repos/tags/logging.1.0.0
         utils.jar -> /tags/utils.1.0.0/utils.jar
       widget.jar -> ../dist/widget-1.2.3b1234.jar
