NEED: dynamic svn:external property

Hello,

I have a specific need concerning the property svn:external. I don't
know if there is a real interest (excepted for me) and if it is judicious.

I use a continuous integration tool which automatically tags my project
on successful build. The problem is that the tag does not reflect the
complete state of the project due to the fact that the project includes
several not fixed external references.

I would like that the svn:external property has the capability to be
automatically modified on copy by adding the current revision of the
external reference to the property. I think that a simple keyword added
instead of a revision should be sufficient.

Example: let the project 'concept' which needs two external modules.
I would like to use the last stable version of those modules:
   svn propget svn:externals concept
   module1 http://svn/module1/branches/stable/2.x@KEYWORD
   module2 http://svn/module2/branches/stable/1.3.x@KEYWORD

After a copy the result has the following properties:
   svn propget svn:externals concept
   module1 http://svn/module1/branches/stable/2.x@revX
   module2 http://svn/module2/branches/stable/1.3.x@revY

Cheers!
Grégory
