Not that I disagree in principle with your reasoning about understanding
revision control at all, just for correctness:
There is no such thing as an "svn tag" operation. SVN tags are plain copies
from trunk (=HEAD) or from a branch, the only difference to branches is that
they are not touched anymore after creation (and that they usually reside in
tags/ instead of branches/). By itself, SVN doesn't distinguish at all
between trunk, branches and tags.
sorry about nitpicking,
