Using externals will still only make one repository accessible via a
working copy based on the other. In other words, the stuff will remain
were it is.

Well, you got it working, but in a complicated way. Just use the
"export" function to get a file tree that is not a working copy. Then,
use "import" or "add" to add this tree to the target repository. In no
case is there a 1-step solution, you need at least two steps.
