Unless you plan on integrating your release cycle with Pd-extended, I  
don't think it makes much sense to use the svn:externals link.  If  
you want to include Gridflow in Pd-extended,  it would make much more  
sense to include released versions of the source in the SVN.

one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better  
language; and every chapter must be so translated.... -John Donne
