So if I do a checkout of trunk and someone does a commit while I am  
doing that I am going to get a screwed up checkout? I don't think so.

If I checkout a tag and someone screws with the tag while I am  
checking out (highly unlikely) no matter what system you use this will  
be screwed up. If I don't get the change then what I "released", even  
if I tar it up first and build from the tar,  doesn't match the tag -  
which is unacceptable. While the source tar has to be buildable SVN  
has to be the system of record. If it can't be trusted to be then we  
should just call it a day.
