Let's say the SVN with history is rev 1000.  You are about to commit rev
1001.  Later we'll add in the compiler at rev 1002.  To build parity, we
want 1000 and 1002, but not 1001.  I don't think tags can do that, but I've
never used them.

I think Omar might be right.  We create a single branch (not necessarily on
the whiteboard), you and others check in their changes there, later we merge
them in.  Right after the parity release we want cut another release with
your changes and a few other changes in there so we'll integrate those
changes from the branch back to trunk.
