tagging subset

First post to the list, so I apologize in advance :-)

My question is that I need to be able to tag a subset a my repository
as a release, and possibly switch back to this subset. This should be
quite easy, and the subversion book gives some hints, but I remain
quite not sure of the "subversion way" of doing this.

First let me describe the organisation of the code. We have one
repository, containing all our developments in the trunk. Then we
create, inside the trunk again, a "product" that only use a small
subset of the library. After compilation, we are of course able to
track the subset, and we know exactly what is used by the "binary"
product.
I'd like then to create a tag (let's say realase1.0 as usual) on this
subset, and come back to that subset for modifications or bug
issues...

The confusion is that it seems like I have to add the whole repository
as a tag (which is not such a big issue since it is cheap copies), but
then I am confused as how you get back to the subset.... The other way
around, selecting only the subset in the tag, seems to be better, but
when switching back, what will happen to the files not in the tag ?

I am setting up some tests here for this issue, but any insight from
the list would be invaluable :-)

Thanks
