You should be able to get most of the same effect of a floating cvs tag
by deleting the svn tag and copying in a new one with the same name.
The delete/create won't be atomic, but it wasn't in cvs either if you
had more than one file. The operation only affects the head view of the
repository, but it should work to let you have scripted operations that
work against known tag names if that is what you are trying to do.
