You can't, really.

For branches, the "copy" style that Subversion uses is pretty
effective. But I'm beginning to think it is a fundamental mistake for

Tags are (conceptually) not copies; they are symbolic names for a
revision. CVS gets this right. What Subversion should do is to
define a mechanism for giving names to a given Subversion revision.
That would let you do what you want, and it would satisfy all uses of
tagging I have run into. By contrast, the tagging approach that
currently exists is awkward in some cases, and worse in others. I
haven't yet run into *any* situation where it felt natural.
