Sorry, I forgot "answer to all" and wondered why it didn't show up on the
list. I'll slap myself for being so stupid.

In my case, I could simply tag the revision before feature B was aded as
"1.1.3-A", given that there was no bugfix later on. Then I could just
compile that version and give it to the customer, no need to backport
anything.

I was hoping for some trick to find the right version faster than just
looking thru all that 'svn log' gives me... Hmm. 'svn log -v' from
within a tag directory shows from what path and revnum TAG was copied.
I could begin the scan for the best revnum to tag from there on, that
would at least narrow the search.

Thank you very much for that hint!
