The copy will copy the exact svn:externals property so a checkout from the tag
will do a checkout of the external.

So if you don't have a -r N in the external, then the tag will continue to pick
up HEAD of the external. So people normally put in an explicit revision in the
external when they tag it so that the tag doesn't pick up newer commits.
