Placing tag messages in trunk

From: Toby Johnson <toby_at_etjohnson.us>

Let's say I have a repository using the "recommended" layout of /trunk
and /tags, and while the repository is at r1001, I want to make a tag
1.0.1. So I do an svn copy of /trunk to /tags/1.0.1, bringing the
repository to r1002.

Later, while at r1011, I want to tag 1.0.2, and again copy /trunk to
/tags/1.0.2, bringing the repository to r1012.

The problem with this is that I can't easily go to /trunk a year from
now, and find out how file /trunk/foo.c changed from tag "1.0.1" to
"1.0.2", since the commit messages from creating the tags only show up
in a "svn log" of /tags, not of /trunk. The best approach I see is to do
a log of /tags, find out the revision numbers for the 1.0.1 and 1.0.2
tags, then do a diff on /trunk/foo.c using the explicit revision numbers
obtained. This is rather unwieldy, especially using TortoiseSVN.

Is there a better way to do this?
