I didn't say it a problem. I'm saying that the TAG would map directly to
a revision in svn which would be the revision of the commit of those
files. You can achieve what you want with tag with just revision number
itself. In case of CVS, you can't do this. If it is of difficulty to map
to a revision, no problem in resuming that again.
