Simply add -r to your svn:externals:

lib-common -r1213 http://server/repos/lib-common

Almost. svn commit will not recurse into externals, so the changes you
make will not be applied as part of the commit in a parent folder.

But, the externals folders are real working copies, meaning you can svn
commit path/to/externals, and Subversion will do the right thing.

Hope that helps,
