No. You should never change a transaction in pre-commit. However, you could
have a *post-commit* trigger that watches for a commit in the tags folder, then
walks that tag to see if there are any un-pegged externals and performs a
propedit to peg those externals at the last revision.

This is slightly tricky because svn:externals is a versioned property, which
means you have to create a new commit in order to change it. Since you are
using 1.5.2, you can use `svnmucc propset`, which directly manipulates the
server without a working copy.
