Switching individual files

What I'm trying to do is create a tag for a release that includes files
(typically a half-dozen to a dozen files) that were switched from the
directory's natural repository.

e.g. dir1/ file://repo1/trunk/dir1
      dir1/moo file://repo1/trunk/dir1/moo
      dir1/oink file://repo1/trunk/dir1/oink
      dir1/tweet file://repo1/branches/birds/dir1/tweet

When I tag this directory, tweet in the tag from
file://repo1/trunk/dir1/tweet so it doesn't really reflect the build. That
is, when I check out the tag, tweet is identical (modulo svn:keywords) to

When I make a branch for tweet and switch all of dir1 to that branch, I have
to remember to [regularly] synch moo and oink deltas from the trunk.
Obviously there are many more sounds in the barnyard and surrounds than I
have used in this illustration, and that makes the problem a bit daunting
for me.

I do have a mechanism of discovering from the compiled binaries just where
the various bits come from, and I've been avoiding doing this as much as
possible, but I really need to [I think] be able to make releases with these
switched files, and I'd like to be able to tag them.
