Neither choice 'feels' quite right to me unless you have an
intermediate branch to make the change.  That is, if you make it on
the trunk before you copy to the tag you break the likely continuing
work on the trunk that expects the externals to also follow trunk
components.   And if you change it in the tag you are breaking the
convention that you don't change tags.   And if you copy the working
copy to a tag you might get other changes in the tag that weren't
committed anywhere else.    Is there a 'best practice' consensus for
this step?
