What is the use case for subrepos? http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/subrepos

It it analogous to svn:externals ?

The Mercurial subrepos are similar to and inspired by git's submodules (but, presumably, less user hostile). You can use this to group your app with the libraries it depends on, for instance.
