Rolling back some components of a tag

A colleague needs to modify (or create a new version) of a tag, so that he ends up with a tag identical to the original except for a few source files that are to be rolled back to previous versions.

I believe it's not possible to roll back the source files in the tag itself because the tag was created later than the source file changes.

My guess was that I should roll back the entire trunk to its state when the tag was created, checkout the necessary mixed revisions and then make a tag of that.

Unfortunately, it gets worse. I have found that the tag was actually created from another tag, not from the trunk.

I hope this doesn't make you wince too much! Does anyone have a suggestion for how to achieve the desired result please?

Best regards
