external with branches/tags and automatic revision locking?

Hi all!

I'm locking for a small feature concerning tagging parts of a big project
folder which contains externals to a global (higher layer) directory. We
want to make use of it to freeze parts of a project for further processing.
I parsed several mailinglists and the Tortoisesvn-Issue-Tracker and found
already an earlier discussion on subversion-sides:
  http://svn.haxx.se/tsvn/archive-2004-12/0092.shtml
  http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1258

However the problem is, when tagging a project-folder that contains
svn:externals (without specific revision via -r option, thus always linked
to the head-revision of a higher-layer folder) the tagged folder contains
the svn:external as before linking always to the actual head-revision. In
that case this externals should automatically be freezed via the -r switch
to the actual revision.
I think a simple check-box within the TortoiseSVN-Tagging-Window would be
very useful.

I didn't want to directly post to the developers-mailinglist or to open a
feature-request without asking here if this was discussed before. Any
statemtent would be appreciated. Perhaps a developer would like to open a
feature-request if not already exist.

Thanx alot in advance.
Best regards

_uli
