So why not create a script to do that for you? "svntag" could do something
simple like this (warning: this script has had very little testing and has
obvious error cases that it doesn't catch):

CURL=`svn info . | grep URL | awk '{print $2}' | sed -e "s/\/trunk\/.*/\/trunk/"`
NURL=`echo $CURL | sed -e "s/\/trunk$/\/tags\/$TAGNAME/"`
svn cp -m "Creating tag $TAGNAME" $CURL $NURL

If you're on a platform that doesn't allow for scripting such as this,
there's very likely a way to create a version in whatever the appropriate
language is to perform the same actions.
