If we intend to make it easy to say "this is the kdesupport for kdesvn-build 
users" then we need to copy those tags into a super-tag or something.

i.e. /tags/kdesupport/latest-release would have cherry-picked subdirs of the 
latest phonon, strigi, qca, etc. releases from their appropriate tag or 
branch.  As new releases occur the tag could be updated as well.

Any release should be tagged.  kdesvn-build right now defaults to trunk on 
everything, changing that wouldn't be too difficult but would require a new 
version of kdesvn-build.  But if you want to go that route let me know so I 
can make a HOWTO bump kdesvn-build default modules type thing in case this 
occurs while I'm away.

I guess another alternative is a file in SVN that kdesvn-build could parse for 
the revision/branch to build by default if there's no conf file.  But I don't 
think I'll have time to write that code until 2009...
