Yup, this is exactly what the Subversion project does. When we wanted
to release 0.24.2, we copied the 0.24.1 tag to a branch, made some
changes, and then copied the branch back to /tags/0.24.2.

And with the new fs db schema, 'svn log /tags/0.24.2' now shows all
the copy events, back to the original 0.24.0 branch. It's great stuff!
