Well, it sounds like the ideal answer is a relative external:
"^/bib/all.bib". Unfortunately, I think you can't use relative paths for
file externals in 1.6; only folder externals will work. (I may be wrong
about this; I only vaguely remember seeing it mentioned at some point.)

Would it be okay to have all.bib appear in a subdirectory for each
paper? ex. /papers/paper/shared/all.bib

If that will work, then just add "^/bib shared" to your svn:externals to
each /papers/paper folder. Or if you have more than one file in /bib,
move all.bib into a subdirectory and then use that as the external
target. ex. "^/bib/shared shared"
