After reading your mail I made a little test. I took a project
containing about 21000 files import it into a new SVN repository and
after that created 50 tags by copying /trunk/project to /labels/xx.
After importation the repository was 643MB and only 645MB after my 50
tags. Like all tests, this one is stupid but my guess is that subversion
tagging by cheap copy is probably as space efficient as the PVCS
labeling system.
