Apologies: it just occurred to me that I made a huge assumption in my 
previous e-mail.

Tags are just copies of the trunk.  (Copying the trunk is a very cheap 
operation in SVN.)  To create a tag you do this:

   svn cp <url-for-existing-dir> <url-for-new-dir> -m 'log message for 

The last such command I issued was:

   svn cp

(and if you look closely you'll see there's already one file in there 
that I updated since making the tag to fix an obscure problem).
