The difference is probably when you do an update the client doesn't
know something has changed in the revision it committed and so doesn't
download that change? I'm guessing here as I'm new to subversion and
trying to learn it all fast :)

In my case one of the reasons I may want to do this is to pin an
svn:externals property on making a Tag. I figure in this case that
it's ok as the client isn't going to switch to that tag, it just wants
to create it, so we pin the externals to the current latest revision
and then the Tag is truly fixed (esp. as the pre-commit hook won't
allow further changes to it - or at least it won't when I write it

Thanks for the answer :)
