tagging is too heavy, any alternative?

Been reading the svn manual, but can't seem to find the answer, and
perhaps it doesn't exist.

In CVS we used to be able to tag our repository on a certain day when
we do a release, this effectively acted more like a marker to let us
know we did something there, and we keep going. In Subversion tagging
is like branching, except you don't write code to a tag beause then it
becomes a branch, but it seems that it copies our whole repository
into the tag part of the subversion repository. This is REALLY heavy
considering our repository is some 20 gigs, and we do this process 3-4
times a month.

Is there no other way to put a 'marker' of some type in the head which
lets us know for example that: "At tag (or marker) 011004 we deployed
revision 6004", so that at a future point we can check out that
particular revision, and know that we had the code as it stood then,
but without having to copy the whole directory.

Thanks
R
