perhaps attaching the actual revision of the svn:external on commit
(only if there is not a revision attached already), while leaving the
svn:external setting in the wc unchanged would solve the problem.

When checking out a revision later you then would always get the
svn:external@rev used a the time of the commit.

Updating such a svn:external to head or any other rev would require
to change the property first.
But for what reason someone would check out an old rev and want the
the svn:external to be at it's head rev?
I can only think of a branch started from an older rev. In this case
changing the property wouldn't hurt.

What do you think?
