Tracking svn:externals?

I'm using svn:externals to link between application projects and the
libraries they use.

My repositories are in the classic trunk/branches/tags structure, and
there's a strict naming convention in place for tags and branches.

Currently, when I make a tag off the trunk, the externals property of
the tag still points to the same place as the trunk copy, as would be

What I would like is a way to automatically change the externals
property to track the branch/tag. For example, if proj1/trunk has an
svn:externals property with "lib1 svn://.../lib1/trunk", when I create a
tag proj1/tags/T1, I would like the svn:externals property of T1 to be
set to "lib1 svn://.../lib1/tags/T1".

Has anyone written a script or hook that does something like this? Any
