Interesting, hadn't considered externals use, certainly food for thought. I need to read up a little about it.

I suspect that the external isn't updated automatically for the committer in this case is it?
And it probably isn't checked that it's in sync when other developers commit in the same area?

I perfer the building of the associated packages to not have to query svn in order to work out what the current version/release of the component being built actually is. Also want developers when they are working on trunk or any other branch to be building the same version as the build system. That type of scheme could work if we're happy that only the build system is producting properly versioned packages.
