automating versioning with tortoise svn

Hi all,

I have the following problem. The company that i work for uses
TortoiseSVN with in-house VBA tools. Tools are stored in repository
and read the version number from a text file that is stored along with
xls file. Every time we tag a release, we use this version number as
the tag name. Every time the version is increased and new tag
created, we need to change version number in two places - text file
and name of the tag. The idea is to do it once.

One idea was incrementing the version number in the file (based on the
tag name) inside of the pre-commit hook on the server side. But of
course, interfering with transaction object is not the most graceful
and legal way of doing (not sure if it is even possible).

Another idea is to customize the TortoiseSVN so that tagging a branch
would automatically pick up the tag name from the text file.

I would like to know what's possible and wouldn't mind hearing
alternative ideas

Thanks in advance,
