I've never used it so am not 100% sure of its uses but from I 
gather "The svn:externals property contains instructions for Subversion 
to populate a versioned directory with one or more other checked-out 
Subversion working copies."

In other words, do a checkout of project A and automatically get 
relevant content from project B as well.
