Let's assume you have a project in a repository.

After some work on that project, you create a tag from trunk to e.g. Version_1.4

Now, you don't have the binaries of that project versioned of course.
But still, since you release those binaries, you'd like to have them
stored somewhere. So I usually add them to the just created tag,
including the debug symbols and any other file I require to debug
possible problems later.
So, I zip all those binaries into one file. Then I open the repository
browser, browse to that new tag, then drag the zip file onto that tag.
That's all.
Behind the scenese, TSVN uses the svn_client_import() API to add that
zip file to the repository.
