Someone is bound to mention that you should post this to users@ list, not dev@.

To answer though, svn:externals is definitely designed to handle this
situation. It also contains a number of ways to control the version
you get. You can pin it to a revision, by including the -r N option
in the URL of the property, but the better way is to have the URL
point to a tag.

For example, I use this to pull the JavaHL source code into Subclipse.
 I recently had it "frozen" by pointing to the 1.5.0-alpha2 tag. But
now, I have modified it to point to the 1.5.x branch so that I can get
the latest version. I will eventually freeze it to the release tag,
and increment it with each release when I want changes.
