Making tags write-once in Subversion 1.3.x, solved

I'd previously asked if there was a good way to make tags "write-once", to
prevent people editing tags after their creation. Various people sent
pointers to tools and guidelines that all boiled down to "only let
authorized users write to tags". This is not what I was looking for.

However, the svnperms.py and svnperms.conf tools in the current
distributions do *precisely* what I wanted. They allow me to use a
pre-commit to set tags with "add" permissions for everyone, "delete"
permissions for a manager, and no "update" permissions for anyone to prevent
people accidentally stepping on locked down tags. I really approve of this!
