Ok, if this is the only reason, and I am already used to this practice,
how would I get into this practice in the first place?

Well, I was also thinking about whether it'd be a good idea to make
changes to makefiles of /trunk/externals but only in my branch. In the end

only makes sense in a larger context... updates to the trunk would
eventually cause trouble to the branch.
