Quick complication that I've been running into myself the last couple days
is whether one or both of the tags have been created with cvs2svn with the
common line not being /trunk. In this case both of the directories appear
to be copied from /trunk at the version that the common branch split off,
with all of the individual files in the directory then replaced with the
proper version from the branch.
It makes it very difficult to nonmechanically determine where on each
branch the two tags came from and I haven't found a way to mechanically
determine it either. Suprisingly the server doesn't seem to have any
problems merging from one tag to the other (although there's a lot of
server hd activity when it happens), but I would think that it would
really mess up this feature request (which is sad because it's at times
like this that such a mechanism would be so valuable)

1. get the log from tag1. In the log, there's the 'copied from' entry
which indicates where the tag is created from
2. do the same for tag2
3. If the 'copyfrom' URL is different for tag1 and tag2, throw an
error (not possible to show the logs between the two tags. They don't
have a common root).
4. If however the 'copyfrom' URL is the same for both tags, we have
now the three URL's required.
