how to change loads of svn:externals definitions in a repo

Hello all,

We have a project where the code is spread over multiple repos. We have one main project repo which shares a lot of code from the other repos with svn:external definitions. Usually we specifies a revision in the svn:external property. That way we get consistent project setup. (The code of the included repos is used in other projects as well and might be modified in a newer revision)
From time to time we would like to integrate the new changes made in the other repos made by our colleagues . Therefore we have to remove all the revision statements in the svn:externals properties, do a svn update. Fix all problems and then have a look at each external checkout at which revision it currently is and put this revision number back again in the svn:external definition to make sure that code changes in other projects on the shared repos will not affect us.

I was just wondering whether any of you out there know a tool that could simplifie this process, or give me a hint how to develop such a solution.
