Just to clear things up, I've made my share of svn mistakes, and using the
tags/* result for anything other than and endpoint is one that I lived to
regret (my doing, so my dogfood.)

Assuming cp /branches/6.0.x /tags/6.0.15 happened at r678123, it's vastly
still preferable to cp -r678123 /branches/6.0.x /trunk/ - that was my point,
not what code y'all are agreeing to use, nor how many trunks and branches
y'all want to struggle with :)

Consider all the recent rearrangement of tags/ you made, this isn't something
you want to have to struggle to unwind four years from now.
