You could check out the entire tags directory, use "svn mkdir" to
create an "old" directory or whatever you want to call it, use "svn
mv" to move your old tags to that directory, then use "svn commit" to
commit it all at once. This may not be ideal if you have very many
tags and their contents is large, as this will eat up client disk
space and take time to check out and manipulate.

Or, you could try using mucc, the multiple URL command client. I have
never used it, but I think it should let you issue multiple remote
renames via URLs in a single commit.
