peg externals to base version

Would it possible to peg externals an so that they update to the same
revision as the working copy automatically?

^/Builds/Framework_at_BASE Framework

We have a several dependent projects that we want to keep in sync as
much as possible, anytime the framework is rebuilt the dependent
projects should be automatically updated and rebuilt. After the
framework builds we check the binaries back into SVN and iff the build
was successful the build server is configured to automatically build
the dependent projects triggering an update downloading latest
framework. If change breaks dependent project we fix or revert
framework and branch framework and/or peg framework in dependent
project only if absolutely necessary. Externals currently work pretty
good for this except when you want to update your working copy to an
older revision you need to manually update framework external folder
to the same revision, for relative externals the ideal behavior would
be for it to update to the same revision @BASE.
