Make libraries and componentise the code rather than randomly sharing
files all over the place. Gives you much better design and structure
for your code.

Then, rather than using externals, simply check out both together in
some known relative position (eg. elsewhere in trunk, assuming you check
out the whole of trunk at a time), and simply refer from one to the
other via relative paths. Make sure you avoid circular
references/dependencies, though.
