Peg revisions are a different feature than explicit revisions.
Example externals with peg and explicit revision:

        dirName /oldPath_at_1200 1400

defines an external in sub-directory dirName. It will contain
revision 1400 of the path that had the name /oldPath in revision

Explicit revisions are fully supported, both as revision number
and date.
