svn update --only-externals?

The current "svn update" command allows for a --ignore-externals
parameter, but has
anyone else wanted/needed a --only-externals parameter?

We have some scripts to add a new svn:externals property to a working copy
and we then wanted to updated JUST the external, nothing else in the
working copy.

It appears you must update the parent directory containing the externals
definition before you can then update it directly. However, doing this
will update everything else in that directory.

So far I haven't come up with a solution other than to completely
the directory structure and place all of our "automated" svn:externals
a separate directory tree which we can update at any time without updating
the user's other files.
