Ok, so a tag is a snapshot of the trunk to which no commits are made,
rather than the branch, which is developed. I suppose a tag isn't
really necessary as long as I recall the revision number at the time at
which the branch was created.

Ok - I see the use of tags now. Question: do tags take up any more
space, or do they function like hard links?

Now, I managed to do some merges, but they didn't behave as I expected:

$ svn co https://svntest/repos/devrep/dlr/trunk
$ cd trunk
$ svn merge https://svntest/repos/devrep/dlr/trunk/dxzz00em0001.p
$ svn commit -m "merge done?"

I checked, and indeed the changes in SC999 were merged into the trunk.

I then did:

$ svn merge https://svntest/repos/devrep/dlr/trunk/dxzz00em0001.p
$ svn commit -m "merge done with sc1230?"

Upon checking, the changes in sc1230 were there, but the changes from
sc999 were over-written, and there was no conflict message. The change
was just a comment at the top of the program.

What have I done wrong?
