Every project seems to have a different convention, and some are not
consistent within themselves. I do not like the redundancies in the names.

The tag "name" is the URL, for example:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/commons/proper/commons-build-plugin/tags/1.4

Not just the last little bit at the end. There is no risk of confusion.

When in your example you list

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/commons/proper/commons-build-plugin/tags/

you are listing the commons-build-plugin tags in the first place! I do not
see the need for redundancy. It's like naming files in a directory with the
containing directory in the file name. Might have been a practice inherited
from CVS for all I know.
