no, sorry, that's not me.

The question is not this subversion-issue. We know how to work around: We
can do it with Tortoise manually after tagging (by adding -rXXX to the
svn:external) or we could use this perl-script (attched in
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1258) to directly create
tags on the server.

We just would like to have a check-box in Tortoise's branch/tag window which
allows for an automatic recursive freezing of all svn:externals (which don't
use yet this -rXXX option) to the current revision by simply adding this
-r<HEADREVISION> at that time. Thus it does the same like this perl-script
with the advantage of the userfriendly interface of TortoiseSVN.
