Ahhh, I see; if you checkout the meta-project at -r100, you want the
external modules to *also* be at r100.

Well, if you define your external to be just a plain URL, then yes,
every time you run 'svn checkout', or 'svn up' from the top of the
meta-project, it will checkout/update the module to HEAD.

But you can still go into the module and run 'svn up -rX' to backdate
it temporarily. That's the simplest solution.

Or, as you say, you can change the svn:external value (as a local mod)
to temporarily pin the module at a specific revision, and re-run 'svn
up'. This would have the same effect.
