Yes, I don't want to change the overall behavior for everyone ;)

I would like an option to be able to work on a project without
specifying --ignore-externals each time.

Some ideas :
  * a config in ~/.subversion/config (but a user would want to tune
project by project)
  * a config project-wide i.e. a property (svn:ignore-externals ?) that
could be overriden by an option (svn up --force-externals)
  * simply a shorter option : svn up -i
