That's a CVS-ism that isn't going to play well with Subversion. If you
are using 'svn cp' to move the files into the appropriate tag directory
until you are complete, you can still do a diff between the HEAD and the
completed tag directory:

svn diff http://server/path/to/trunk http://server/path/to/tags/tag03

It's just much messier to get a concise report of changes, but it is
still possible (you'd have to scan the diff output for what files had
changed, then run the log on just those files to get the revisions, etc.).

The sooner you can get away from trying to do the same thing with
Subversion as you did with CVS, the better things are going to be for
you. Actually, I'd recommend using a branch to compile your release
candidates, and don't create a tag until you are finished. Then you can
go back to my earlier recommendation.
