Buf if you call the svn copy a third time it will throw an error and
does not change anything in the repo.

Futher calls of "cp -r src dest" do not result in a error message and
anything in src will be copied to dest/src all the time.

Yes, the trunk/tags/branches is logical concept.

To avoid changes of existing tags I'll use "svn info" to check if my
destination tag directory exists and abort if it does, otherwise i do
the the svn copy.
