That's pretty much what I do, too. It's manageable for core, but
modules (at least in 4.7) make it much more complicated. Perhaps it's
worse for me, since I'm new at Drupal, and keep trying a variety of
modules. Every time I add a new module, I have to do another import,
and figure out a new tag. Then doing merges gets ugly.
The 5.0 module version scheme should help this - at least making it
easier to map my Subversion tags to the CVS versions.
