I do our Subclipse tags this way as well. Mainly so that I can do
everything in one commit. Depending on your layout and needs, you might
be able to make your tag using Subclipse by doing it from our SVN
Repository view.

I'd prefer that the Subversion command have a way to do it. Otherwise it
will be multiple commits.

I think Eugene Kuleshov has suggested something similar before. See:


Something like that would certainly be a nice enhancement.
