I see the same behavior using v1.4.3. If I define an external from a tag,
the externals reference bypasses the pre-commit hook script on the external
repository. If I try to update the tag itself, the pre-commit hook steps in
and prevents it.

I thought that this was due to some stupid mistake on my part or
inexperience with svn:externals. The references I read (I checked the SVN
Book as well as Willam Nagel's and Mike Mason's books) didn't give a clear
picture of what is supposed to happen.

Are svn:externals supposed to be read-only, or do I have to set a specific
property to make it so?
