I don't think using a date to peg an svn:external is intended to work
[1]. What would you expect such a date to mean? If there are multiple
commits on that day, which one should subversion pick? Doesn't this
ambiguity bother you?

[1] http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.advanced.externals.html

A work-around: Use svn log to get the revisions for that day. Pick the
revision number that's most appropriate and use that.
