That depends on the nature of the tweak.  If the tag represents a live
production release, and the promotion is a bugfix, then a new branch is not
appropriate imho, as an future releases will come off the main branch, not
off this tag.  I suppose it depends on the quantity and duration of the
bugfixes though :-)
