That would obviously suits me :-)

I guess this would be good enough, but this wouldn't really preserve
history. With such a repository, if you checkout a one month old
revision you will get ffmpeg without the libswscale directory :-(
I think the right way to do it would be to follow your proposition
up to the revision where the svn:external was added, and then
import the revisions from both repositories interleaved.
But I won't insist on this and your proposition is good enough
for me.
