?? cvs2svn tries to make tags efficiently, anyway. Obviously, Bern's
experience points to something different! We shouldn't treat this as
a "known bug". It's actually new (and kind of surprising).

Ben's description of Subversion tagging applies to the ideal case
only: giving a tag name to one exact revision tree. Anything more
complex than that will take up more space, proportional to the
complexity ("mixedness") of the tagged tree.

Bern, thanks for the excellent mail. I've saved it, along with some
other recent cvs2svn mails. I'm finishing issue #1510 right now, but
will come back to these issues. Mike Pilato or others may jump on
them sooner, time permitting.
