I see. If I understand correctly you're suggesting to create
branches/4.2.x/ and set its svn:externals property to
branches/4.2.0/ until we move repositories. During the move
we will first remove branches/4.2.x/ and the rename (move)
branches/4.2.0/ to branches/4.2.x/.

If this is not it, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll plan
on setting it up first thing tomorrow. I've never used
svn:externals so this'll be an interesting exercise!
