Having the svn:external on a development branch is a very workable 
alternative as far as I can see now.

As a result now: a) the release manager has less "special steps" to make 
and b) a release can be made at any time, independent of the release 
cycle of the dependencies (say in case of a security problem or whatever).

Thanks for thinking further!
