Are you sure? If you copy a tree of files into a new directory (e.g.
tags/1.2) then check that in, you are not going to be creating a tag,
because a) subversion doesn't know anything about tags/1.2 unless you svn
add it. and b) you'll have copied the hidden .svn directories which still
point to the original path.
