Externals referencing a versioned folder in its path?

Right now I have the boost C++ library in a versioned folder in my working
copy at this location (Windows):


I want to add new components to the boost library through external links, so
I would expect to be able to create an external like this:

External location: C:\project\sdk\boost

http://path.to.boost.library.component/ boost\new_component

However, the above will not work because 'boost' in the external's path is
already versioned, and doing an update results in an error. Is there a way I
can do this? The reason why I'm not putting the external in
C:\project\sdk\boost\boost is because the external in question has files in
it, and since I can't create externals to files, I have to create the
external 1 level up (since the external I'm adding essentially adds files to
the C:\project\sdk\boost\boost folder itself).

Help is appreciated.
