The "svn info <TAG-URL>" doesn't contain the information I want. It
shows me the revision number that created the tag, but not the
revision number that tag was based upon. It's a subtle but important

For example, a
    $ svn info http://svn/dev/ads/tags/QA/ADS-5.3-Q-20

will show me that this tag was created on revision 12740, but if I
take a log on this:

   $ svn log --verbose --quiet --stop-on-copy
   r12741 | DWeintraub | 2008-07-15 16:33:12 -0400 (Tue, 15 Jul 2008)
   Changed paths:
       A ads/tags/QA/ADS-5.3-Q-20 (from ads/tags/DEV/ADS-5.3-D-139:12740)

I see this tag was copied from the development tag ADS-5.3-D-139

Doing the following to see where ADS-5.3-D-139 came from, I get:

    $ svn log --verbose --quiet --stop-on-copy
    r12740 | DWeintraub | 2008-07-15 16:30:57 -0400 (Tue, 15 Jul 2008)
    Changed paths:
        A ads/tags/DEV/ADS-5.3-D-139 (from ads/trunk:4615)

I see that ADS-5.3-D-139 was taken from revision 4615 of
http://svn/dev/ads/trunk and not revision 12741 which is which the
"svn info" command will show.

And, it took me only two "svn log" queries for me to get to that conclusion.
