svn export from working copy skips externals

See subject line. If you run "svn export path/to/workingcopy" (as
opposed to "svn export url://to/repository") and the working copy
contains externals, these are not present in the exported directory,
and there is no message indicating this omission.

A bug was filed on this well over a year ago:


I understand that some bugs and feature requests sit around for a
long time, because there is disagreement over whether it is a bug, or
the bug is difficult to reproduce, or there is disagreement about how
the feature should function, or there is nobody sufficiently
interested in the feature to implement it. But svn export functioned
properly up thru the end of the Subversion 1.1.x line, and only
stopped working in Subversion 1.2.0, and hasn't worked right since.
(I tested it today in Subversion 1.4.4 on Mac OS X; it doesn't work
right.) I feel that the fact that it used to work, but now doesn't,
should give this bug some precedence in getting resolved.

Short of actually diving in and mucking with the Subversion source
code, at which I would be no good, is there anything I can do to help
get this bug resolved?
