I'm assuming that means I don't need to answer your other two emails on 
this?  :)

For the benefit of other folks who don't want to read down through all 
those comments to figure this out, it sounds like the procedure is:

1. modify your setup.cfg to remove the tag setttings
2. edit setup.py to bump the version number
3. use "svn cp . url:to/branch" to create the branch
4. svn revert setup.cfg  (to put back the tag flags)
5. svn commit (to commit the new version number on the trunk)
