That produces an error:
subversion/libsvn_client/copy.c:999: (apr_err=200007)
svn: Trying to use an unsupported feature
svn: cannot copy path
'svn+jack://macboy.repenning.homeip.net/svn/jrepenning' into its own
child 'svn+jack://macboy.repenning.homeip.net/svn/jrepenning/tags/foo'

You can achieve what you probably meant with a bunch of stuff like

svn copy svn://host/file1 svn://host/tags/foo/file1
svn copy svn://host/file2 svn://host/tags/foo/file2
