Since 'tags' are just copied directories/files, rather than specific
revision numbers, I think what you need to do is find out what revision
created the previous tag (using --stop-on-copy helps), and then do an
svn log between that revision and the revision creating the new tag (or
HEAD). This'll give you the first item you asked for. For the second,
svn diff <tag1> <tag2> and a bit of shell magic should get you what you
need (filter the diff output and send the result to your zip program).
