But if I read Lira's mail right she has externals in Repo A pointing
to externals in Repo B where A and B are different servers so a repo
relative external won't help will it (all you could hope to remove is
the https:// so you could switch to svn:// more easily)?

However if I read Ryan's script correctly it's all in the line that
does the url changing.

'^(\S+) http://url/to/old/repo(\S+)' '^\2 \1'

My regexp's are always rusty but if you were dumping server A's repo
the above regexp needs to be changed replace https://Repo B/.... with
https://Repo D/... and keep the rest of the URL the same. Maybe
something like...

'^(\S+) http://Repo B(\S+)' '^\1 http://Repo D\2'

(but I would double check that line first!)
