Sorry about that Howard, svn:externals requires a local Subversion of 
1.6 or greater.

I haven't followed in a while, but I remember some discussion about keeping the migration guide up higher in the tree instead of down in the docs. svn:external cannot refer to a single file as far as I know, and must instead refer to a directory.  To make the migration guide in the top of the tree work, would we need an external in the docs tree back to trunk?  We probably don't want that either...
