One of the options for this command, in the subsequent dialog, is "Omit externals". I expect that this is an option to surface the --ignore-externals option for the "svn update" command. That would allow you to update the main working copy without changing the externals.
That's what I'm using already.

It is not because it leaves the externals "as is" where I want them to
be at the same revision as the main working copy.
I'll look around to see how to create a feature request.
