Thanks for the input Jim and Rick, to clarify

- check out a branch to workspace
- *overwrite* a number of those files in workspace from various tags (not
update so there is no possibility of merge conflicts)
- tag the consolidated workspace

- I can't specify tagged files by name (too many)
- I will use two or more tag sets (of potentially 20 + files each)

Same effect. 

If I understand the original message correctly, Euan does not want to
_update_ to that revision, he wants to _replace_ the branch with what is
currently on the trunk (and, I am guessing, subsequently check it in).
