If I have:
svn:externals set to "lib -r21 <repos-B-url>/trunk" in revision x of my
repository A and then I'm tagging repository A trunk, then the checked out
tag of repository A would still include the revision 21 of the repository B
trunk, right?

That's part of a bigger problem. When you "tag", exactly how are externals
to be handled? For that matter, in your case, have to make a copy of (part
of) repository A, and the same for repository B. And you may or may not
want to "freeze" the rev level that the external in A refers to in B. There
is no single answer to this class of problems.

The "svncopy" program handles some of these issues.
