None, but I thought that svn:externals would mark the checked-out
sources of OpenEJB as not-committable, i.e. no local modification
could be committed. As Bill has explained, it's not true when you're
in the openejb directory that wouldn't be any different than they're
now. The only difference is that you wouldn't be able to commit your
changes from the parent directory of the openejb dir (which is
possible now). All in all, I was mistaken in my reasoning and am very
grateful for your patience :-)

On the other hand, Jason and Dave are working on publishing the
updated jars to and it seems that it will likely turn out
we won't have to introduce the change.
