Thanks Nick, I've too arrived to this conclusion. My case is a bit more
annoying because I'm modifying the external library too from the main
project, so I can't link to a "frozen" revision of the library ATM. Thus
when I make a milestone for the project, I must go to make tags for all
the external libraries involved and make new external ad-hoc properties
for the milestone tag.

Seeing that this issue is likely to be beating on developers for time to
come, I wonder if there's some plan to address it in the svn roadmap.
