If you have, or can turn on, WebDAV and autoversioning then there is
another option:

Download Netdrive from
http://support.novell.com/servlet/filedownload/uns/pub/ndrv41862.exe/

See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.webdav for
instructions on configuring SVN.

Use Netdrive to connect a drive letter to your Subversion repository, then
just start up Windows explorer and use drag/drop to rearrange your tag
folder.

Normally I loathe using WebDAV to access a subversion repository (you will
get a lot of automatically generated (and completely useless) entries in
the log) but for something like this it seems justified.
