Why do you need this? Can't you set the svn:externals definition on
the directory two levels up instead?

Here is what I want to do:

My repository tree structure is:

        |- components/
        | |- component1/
        | |- component2/
        | `- component3/
        `- platforms/
                `- platform1/ <- svn:externals

"platform1" refers to "component1",2,3 thus what I need after a checkout of
"platform1" is:

        |- component1/
        |- component2/
        |- component3/
        `- platform1/

So the only way (that I've found) to automate this (excluding the individual
checkout of the 3 components and the platform) would be to add svn:externals
properties on the "platform1/" directory as follow:

../component1/ http://repository_url/components/component1/
../component2/ http://repository_url/components/component2/
../component3/ http://repository_url/components/component3/

But ../component1/ is not supported...
