Yes, if different teams are working on different components, using
externals is the way to go even if it takes some effort to arrange
things into neat subdirectories for easy reference. Besides giving
you a way to pull in the changes cleanly, it also gives you a way to
version those points separately and each component can have its own
release/tagging process and the consuming projects can adjust their
references when they are ready.
