This is a very good point I'd forgotten about.  However, currently the
existing svn:externals all point to read-only svn:// URLs, and switching
them to http:// would not change anything substantially.

Subversion 1.5 lets you use relative URLs in svn:external, if you're
willing to forgo compatibility with Subversion 1.4 clients.
