The standard Python pre-commit hook (I believe) has the ability to set an
"add-only" permission on a directory tree. With that, you can create a tag,
but you'd be unable to modify the files in that tag.

That would be the best solution. It would allow anyone you'd like to create
a tag, but no one could modify a tag once it was created (unless you gave
someone permission to do so).

I have a Perl pre-commit hook that does the same thing: You can give
"add-only" permission which allows you to specify who may create a tag, but
will prohibit the editing of the files under that tag once the tags are
