Who said you had to have all of your tags in one basket? You need to read the
book, specifically:


You can structure your repository any way you want. If your libraries are all
very independent of each other, each can be a "top-level" project; if they are
closely related, you can group them. You can do whatever you want.

The natual build numbers are equivalent to tags, see:

$ svn ls http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags

The revision numbers are almost never used by themselves, except for development
releases (so you can tell exactly when someone built against trunk, for example).
