It's not that Git doesn't cope with it, it's just something unexpected
even for a svn user. I would never consider doing a 'svn up' after I
do a 'svn co' on a tag.  As a long time svn user I always understood a
tag as a single point in time with no modifications after it has been
created. So if I did a 'svn co' before you did the merge to that tag,
then if I spoke of tag 0.9.26 (expecting it not to change) if would be
different to your tag 0.9.26.  Hence my concern about the odd usage of
