If you use release:prepare to create a tag, it will insert *that* tag, 
whatever it is, in the pom source.

Of course, you can always do what the release plugin does by hand.  That's 
a surprisingly viable option, especially for single-module projects like 
dbutils.  All the plugin does is:

* run some verification checks
* change the version number and the POM source link, check-in
* create the tag
* change the version number to the next development version, check-in

For small projects I maintain, I don't use the release plugin, partly for 
this very reason.
