Not necessarily.  Try tagging in svn.  It's so hard I had to write a
couple scripts:

$ cat gnome-tag-release 
if test x$# != x3; then
        echo gnome-tag module tag release
svn copy svn+ssh://$1/trunk svn+ssh://$1/tags/$2 -m "Tagged for release $3."

Yeah, it's conceptually easy: "svn copy from to", but makes absolutely
no sense even compared to cvs.
