Honestly, if the tag keeps changing all the time, then it's not really
much of a tag, is it? It's more of a branch.

It sounds like Stephen should be using 3 branches and porting changes
between them. Then when he needs to make a 1-time snapshot (i.e. to
remember something that got delivered to a customer), he can copy the
production branch to a tag.
