I don't think so. The point is that each released version of Zope
(already) depends on a specific, released version of ZODB; we don't
*want* to be copying ZODB into the Zope tree in the repository, because
that implicitly creates a fork (i.e., people check into the ZODB copy
inside the Zope tree, which is Evil (TM).)
When you use 'svn:externals', the referenced package itself is *not*
part of the containing checkout; it is managed separately by the svn
client (sort of like ESI and page fragments).
Tim points out that there are a number of these external dependencies,
including ZConfig and zdaemon, which are not directly part of ZODB
either: it depends on them in the same way that Zope depends on ZODB.
