Change the external property as needed. Simple as a commit to the
repository directory your wanting to get. Better yet, standardize your
access protocol then you won't have to change those external properties
as much.

Argh... the whole 'need only' a file thing. Export has the same
'feature'. Yes, this can be a pain to deal with. Only suggestion I can
offer up is to change your directory structure to accommodate this
'feature' of Subversion. Yo' Subversion developers, if you're reading
this, this would be a very nice improvement for the externals and export

Actually, this does work in in Eclipse with the Subclipse plugin. I
can't verify that with the command line (never tried), but I know it
does work with Subclipse without errors.
