Creating an svn:external instead of a fully populated tag with a
lightweight copy is an interesting idea. Still requires the
user/script to do 2 actions (create tag, update external props),
instead of just 1 action (update tag).
I personally like the idea of keeping past revisions of a
"floating tag" available, but convincing others to do
more work for functionality they don't think they need
usually proves futile...
