But I think it would work to do a single commit that specified both
folders explicitly. (I don't think it matters if they are externals or
not, as long as they belong to the same repository.) So something like

svn commit folder1 folder2 -m"blah blah"

should be the solution to the original question. Using externals is the
solution to a different problem. Sorry for the noise...
