As some people have pointed out, you can lock down the tags directory
via the configuration except for a few users who are allowed to create
tags. There are a few problems with this:

* Users have to go to the tag-creating user to get their tags made.
* If the tag creating user is also a developer, there is still a good
possibility that user would accidentally update the tag.

The Python pre-commit hook allows you to specify that a directory is
"add-only" for a particular set of people. See
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/hook-scripts/ and take a
look at svnperms.py and svnperms.conf.example.
