That or svn log --stop-on-copy.

If you use svn log -v --stop-on-copy, the list of changed paths (the
copy destination) will be given, in addition to the source path and
its revision. Parse that out and you're set. You'll have both the
revision which created the tag and the latest revision of the path the
tag came from.
