I like to do it from the working copy because, for my tags, I peg all my
svn:externals at a specific revision (using the @1234 syntax). I also copy
.msi installers, etc, into a new folder in the tag.

The pegged externals and the installer never actually make it into the
trunk, nor to my mind should they, so it seems like the logical way to do

You could do something similar by creating the tag from the repo browser,
but it would require at least two commits then (one for each folder with
externals, and one for the installer folder).

I leave my working copy pointing to trunk after tagging, then simply revert
the folders with externals property changes, and delete the installer
