I KNOW that they don't take any (significant) storage space. I said
they take an equal amount of space in the repository tree. I.e. a
"tag" for a single revision contains an entire subtree with every
single folder and file of the folder that was "copied". Stuff that is
already elsewhere in the repository and only needs to be "marked"
