An "svn copy" could still be useful. In fact, if you did something like this:

$ svn mkdir https://svn/repos/foo/tags
$ svn copy https://svn/repos/component-2/tags@300 https;//svn/repos/foo/tags

You not only be able to refer back to build-3 without trying to
remember it was revision 300, but you would have been able to get back
all of your other tags too.
