Propagating tags to external definitions?

I'd like to use the svn:externals feature to implement a component-based
product heirarchy. That is, there will be some component directories,
say C1, C2, C3, and some product directories, say P1 and P2. The
products, in addition to their own code, will use one or more
components. For example, P1 will use C1 and C2; P2 will use C2 and C3.
Both the products and the components are in-house code under active

Having P1 and P2 define the components as externals works nicely, execpt
that when a programmer tags a product tree, the relevant components are
NOT tagged. This makes it difficult to use tags as "snapshots" of the
projects that can be later recreated.
One solution that was suggested is some kind of hook that would tag the
component trees listed in the project's externals property whenever a
project was tagged.

1. Does this make sense?
2. Does someone have such a script and care to share it?
3. Is there a more elegant solution for this?
