Yes, this does get pretty slow.

I recall the reason I did this was when creating the tag, it compares
what ends up in the tag with what was requested to be checked in as
a consistency check for Subversion and svn_load_dirs.pl.

It could be modified to not check out the entire tag directory at all,
and make the tag copy directly on the server instead of in the wc, and
then check out the tag and do a diff to verify that everything was done

I'll take a look at it.
