I don't think that such a tag would be possible, but that still depends
on some things that i'm unclear about. First off, Subversion does not
have a concept of tags. In subversion, tags are copies of parts of your
repository with the additional semantics that you intend to never modify
this copy again (the latter part is typically achieved via a pre-commit
hook or mere developer discipline).

Maybe you should elaborate a bit about what you plan to do with the
"tag" you are talking about, then we can tell you what subversion
concepts and mechanisms are available to achieve what you plan to do.
