Changing versioned properties in older revisions,

I would like to change the 'svn:externals' property on all revisions of
a project because the host name of repository that it points to is
changing. The repository isn't changing, only the name
(svn.something.com/repository -> svn.something.com/foo/respository). I
know how to change the HEAD, which is fine and solves most of my issues.
The minor issue is that if someone tries to check out a revision from
before the repository changed its name the externals will all be broken.
I don't think it will happen very often but I'm the person who will have
to fix it when it does. It would be easier if I could just preemptively
prevent that situation.
