Ah well, 'svn help list' shows '--include-externals' as an option, but
thats the only hint it does not recurse into externals by default.

'svn help pg' on the other hand doen't gives not infomation about
externals at all, and it rejects '--include-externals'.
So no recursing into externals with 'svn propget' at all 8-(
