The problem with tags in SVN is that there really aren't any, there
are just directories that are used as tags by convention.

Not really, and from what I've seen it's very tricky to get it to work

a cron job.  I should add some sort of locking as well so that if one
run lasts too long a subsequent run won't step all over the previous
