Moving or reusing tags

Hi all

I currently use CVS and use tags to remember the last merged version so when
I need to merge more than once from a branch I just use the tag and the
branch head then force re-tag after the commit. This way the exact same CVS
commands can be performed to repetitively merge. The format I use is:
Branch name: BUGnnn
Last Move to Test Merge tag: mt_BUGnnn
Last Move to Prod Merge tag: mp_BUGnnn
I also have a branch point tag bp_BUGnnn just in case.

It appears that in subversion I could follow something similar using the
merge URL URL format but when it comes to moving the mt_BUGnnn or mp_BUGnnn
tag I'd have to delete the existing tag first then make a new copy. It would
be nice to have an overwrite option on the copy command.

Subversion looks like a great product and I'll be closely watching its
