Use of relative externals

Hi all,

Relative externals are not documented yet in the svn book nightly, so
I have to ask here for clarification :-)

../ relative to the parent directory of the external

Presumably I can go up several levels (../../../project/dir/subdir).
Can I go above the repository root and back down into another
repository? (../../../../repos2/project/dir)

^/ relative to the repository root

Again, is this restricted to the same repo, or can I access other
repositories in the same SVNParentPath?

// relative to the URL scheme

This just protects against a change of access method (http -> https) ?

/ relative to the server's hostname

Can't think of any stupid questions to ask about that :-)
