      Description

      This request is a follow-up after issue 937
      http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=937
      
      File externals are introduced in subversion 1.6, however only for
      intra-repository file externals. Inter-repository file externals are not supported.
      
      In my organization we use tools that expect libraries to be available in the
      same directory. When using libraries from different SVN repositories, it is
      required to add file externals. Directory externals won't work because they add
      a directory level to the current directory. Additionally, we don't want to pull
      all libraries from an external repository into all our projects, only the
      libraries those projects need.
