I'm going to have to jump in here and defend Subversion. You can't
call something a "design error" without a lot of justification. :-)
Implementing tags as copies works great in Subversion. Copies take up
virtually no space in the repository unless you start modifying them,
and then they take up as much space as your modifications. So what is
your objection to tags as copies?
