One disadvantage of externals, which you might not have run into yet, is
that they become invalid when you rename a project. For example you have:


Say if the dataclasses project gets renamed to dbclasses you would have
to go find all the externals and change them to the new name:


And you would also have to consider for each one whether to rename the
subdir name:


So either you've never renamed projects in your set up, or you have
broken releases ;-)
