The things people complain about sometimes astonish me -- just as the things I complain about sometimes astonish others :-) I used tags for ZODB until I gave in to complaints about that, and switched to using revision numbers. The real complaint about using a tagged external is that when the tag changes, SVN isn't smart enough to do an incremental update. Instead, when you update after an external tag changes:
What do you mean with "when the tag changes"? A tag IMO should *never* change. I know that even CVS allows you to modify tagged files however I consider this a misuse of the concept "tag". A tag in my understanding is identical with the state for a sequence of files and dirs for a given timestamp where the timestamp should never change.
