Before externals can be supported in bzr-svn nested trees have to be
supported in Bazaar, and it doesn't look like that will be anytime soon.

eol-style is already supported in Subversion working copies, and so are
properties. Bazaar doesn't have equivalents for these yet, so there's
nothing bzr-svn can map to.

Thanks, glad it's useful!
