Beyond that, externals have a different problem: I always have to
enclose the access method in the externals definition. I can't access
them with a different method (svn, ssh, file, dav,...) then.

I'd therefore like to prose a new feature: SVN Copies of files, that
keep following. When I change one, all other copies change as
well. Like a hard link inside the repository. Would be really useful.
(And maybe the checkout should produce real hardlinks...)
