Well, that would happen if you did it in a working copy (and if it
wasn't busted). People seem to want to do it on a repos directly (say
to copy a new tag over an existing name).

I threw together a simple little perl script to do it via the perl
bindings, and it isn't that hard. If people really want to be able to
do this I could clean it up and check it in as an example or something.
