It does not use a lot of space. Subversion uses a constant amount of
space to store a copy of something; it does not relate to the size of
the things you're copying. Subversion only actually starts storing
file data if you change the copy.

So, long story short: don't worry about making a "copy" of the whole
project into a tag. It does not take up any appreciable disk space.
