Equivalent of "cvs rtag -F"

In CVS, I can move a tag with "cvs rtag -F my_tag".

With Subversion, AAUI, I have to delete the tag before creating the
new one:

$ svn delete $repo/tags/my_tag
$ svn copy $repo/trunk/ $repo/tags/my_tag

Is there a simpler way to do that?

The use-case is for a university project. The students are asked to
put the tag "final_version" when they feel ready, and they can move
the tag up to a deadline. That allows them to continue working and
commiting close to the deadline.

The problem is that knowing my students, they'll put the tag once, and
trying to update it, they'll delete it, and forget to re-create
it. :-(
