export with svn:externals

there are difficulties with export with TortoiseSVN.

the scenario: (example)

There is one repository.
For common components there is an folder "central"
and for user specific files the folder "users".

Inside central is "main" an "Common"
Inside users there are the folders "userA" , "UserB" an so on, in each of this is an folder "databases"

There are svn:externals on folder userA (userB , ...) like

../../central/main main
../../central/Common Common

The first problem is, in then working copy of the folder userA the log does not show the log entries of the folders main and Common, because
they are externals

The second an bigger problem is, if you export a certain revision of userA, for example Revision 100 , TortoiseSVN exports the HEAD Revision
from main an Common and not Revision 100, only from databases it exports the revision 100.

We would like to be able to:

- export all subdirectories with the revision we set (in our example revision 100) , even if we get the subdirctory over external definitions
(in the same repository) and not the HEAD Revision for these externals.

- see in the working copy the log entries of the folders an files we get over externals without changing into the specific dirctory

- get an warning, if we export with an specific revision, that externals are exported with the head revision

Please built in this features.
Thanks !
