Relative Revision Peg On Relative Path Externals

      Description

      The feature is to allow notation like the following external definition
      
      ../../common/module1@RELATIVE module1
      
      in order to peg an external to the revision of the folder owning the the 
      external property.
      
      Without such a "relative" peg the external revision would need to be manually 
      pegged specifically to the revision at each code change or a future retrieval 
      of the project at a given revision would export/checkout the externals at the 
      head revision.
      
      Without such a feature it is cumbersome and error prone to get the exact code 
      state at a required revision, as it either will have required careful manual 
      management at commit time, or will require manual intervention at 
      export/checkout time to ensure externals are set the correct revision.
