I support svn all over the place, and there's a grain of truth in the above,
which is misleading.  True svn's idea of tagging is different from other
versioning systems, but the default configuration is "directory tree
carefully designed" as stated above.  The default root of a new svn
repository tree includes three directories:  branches, tags, and trunk.  So
unless you decided to delete the "tags" directory, then svn natively
supports tags via directories.
