We don't have a real plan for svn:externals yet, unfortunately.

The to-do list has items to figure out where externals are used and why.
Off the top of my head I can only think of libbackground right now, and
that's definitely a candidate for making it into a real library, or at
least folding it into gnome-desktop.

I've never used Git's submodule support, so I have no idea if it would
be a good substitute for svn:externals (but I don't think those are a
good idea in general, anyway) :)

Do you know which modules use externals, or at least some of them, to
start getting an idea?
