It is not your fault, you just walked into one of several areas that has
been the subject of mini flare-ups in the past and your somewhat snarky
comment caused the reaction you got.

The truth is that svn:externals is Subversion's take on CVS modules. It
handles some scenarios quite well, and others not so much. So most people
would shy away from saying that is the "equivalent" of modules until they
know your use case.
