You can already do that! There's a tool to create 'moving' or
'floating' tags in
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/contrib/client-side/mucc.c : a
tool which combines any number of rm, cp or mv operations on URLs into
1 commit. (I believe moving tags should be rm'ed and cp'ed in the same
commit to look like they're moving.)

Build instructions are at the top of the file.

HTH,

Erik.
