You have to make sure that you unpack each build into a separate
directory. For example, if you have two archives cookie-1.0.tar.gz
and cookie-1.1.tar.gz, and both unpack into a directory 'cookie/',
you will have to do something like this:

   tar xvfz cookie-1.0.tar.gz; mv cookie cookie-1.0
   tar xvfz cookie-1.1.tar.gz; mv cookie cookie-1.1

With this, you can now use the script on the directories in parallel.

Alternatively (I haven't tried this, but it might work), unpack and
import each build in sequence:

   tar xvfz cookie-1.0.tar.gz
   svn_load_dirs.pl -t tags/1.0 URL cookie
   rm -r cookie

   tar xvfz cookie-1.1.tar.gz
   svn_load_dirs.pl -t tags/1.1 URL cookie
   rm -r cookie
