What I mean is, checkout and (or subpaths of those) 
into their own working copies, and only edit files in those WCs, instead of 
editing files in the external paths of your main modperl WC of

That way, you don't need recursive diff over externals, and you don't need 
https URLs for the externals, since you don't commit through them. Even Unix 
users without SSL compiled-in can then retrieve the source (standard Windows 
binaries and the popular TortoiseSVN client have SSL).

Of course, depending on how you work, having three different working copies 
might not be a good option.
