In addition to this, I'd like to bring up the use of svn:externals in
GNOME.  I know that many modules (mine included) make use of it to
include live versions of external code for bundling purposes.

Is there a migration plan for these settings?  Several scenarios will
likely crop up: including another git module (could probably use Git
submodules), and including an external SVN module (?).

The answer very well may be no, we're not going to support externals,
but I just want to make sure the issue is raised and addressed.
