Also, AFAIK the option in CVS was not there from the beginning and was
introduced for repository maintenance, and required a "force" option.
(And you aren't allowed to commit to tag so you wouldn't do it by
accident... Does svn at least have a lock folder/branch command

And as SVN revision ids are global/repository-unique, is there a
reason to tag before compiling/testing like with CVS?
