Maybe, yes. But maybe this even works; depends on how the post-commit
hooks "see" the changes in an svn:externals repo within v3.

But I agree that we could change the abuild hooks to only "fire" if
there was a change in the LinuxBIOSv2/ directory or below.

For v3 there's no abuild at the moment anyway.

Yep, if we want to take the history with us, then yes, I think we want this.

Uh, no, rather the other way around (merge v3 into the current
v1/v2/util repo).
