   You could use a pre-commit hook to enforce only svn:externals that are
   pointing at fixed revisions.

   As you pointed out, this could becoume a hassle if the target is
   swiftly and you want to follow it, but I'd suggest that that's the
   price you have to pay in order to reliably trace what externals you're
   linked against.

   You can always replace the svn:externals in your working copy with
   HEAD and not commit it (enforced by your pre-commit hook) if you want
   to track HEAD for a while...
