Don't use "-rREV URL" (an operative revision) in an externals definition. Do use "URL_at_REV" (a peg revision). I recommend you use a (peg) revision in every external you define. I don't consider this more work; I consider it an absolute necessity to unambiguously indicate what resource you're intending to obtain.

I don't think so.
