So I have found that using externals in the "normal" projects sort of
solves my main problem of including library and common files into
different real projects.
However I have now run into a slightly different problem:
When I declare the external I have not found a way to limit the depth
of recursion such that only the top directory of the external gets
checked out..

I use an open-source library in several projects and it contains a doc
subdirectory with essentially a website of html and image files. I
don't want these 77 files to be checked out as externals if I can
avoid it, but limit to the 8-10 source files in the top level code

Can this be done using some externals flag?

Or should I create a branch of the library where I only hold the top
level directory (svn remove the doc dir in the branch) and use this as
the external?
