Re: I miss tags

While I do recognize that svn copies are minimal cost operations, I do also
recognize that something is lost from the movement towards copies. For
instance, I highly doubt that the following command would work:

svn merge -r http://xxx/repos/tags/tag16.c:http://xxx/repos/tags/tag17
http://xxx/repos/trunk
