That means you have to do a mkdir and then N copies, resulting in N + 1
commits. You really think that is what people would want?

Right, they all go to the same target such as url://repos/tags/version1

There is no way I am going to initiate a commit in the middle of this
process. That would mean having to collect a commit message and also the
commit will only succeed if the folder with the property is at the HEAD

In some cases it certainly would. I guess what I was hearing, was that
you would essentially be doing the same create tag that you would have
done from the repositories view, except with this technique the property
could also be maintained and in many cases it would be more obvious to the
