Perhaps a 'tag' composed of file externals?

Close, but not exactly.  A vtable could be compared to an abstract class; 
each of the four RA libraries (ra_local for file://, ra_svn for svn*://, 
ra_neon and ra_serf for http://) implements that vtable.  (We also use 
vtables in other places, e.g., between libsvn_fs and libsvn_fs_*.)

In practice, every library defines all vtable members, so it's 
s/can override/must define/.
