I think it would make sense to implement this with an URL like:
ie. extend the existing magic "." revision so that it would honor the
only_with_tag parameter, if present. (Currently, "." works only with
the default branch.)
How did the "working" URLs look like in your old cvsweb?

I'll have a look, it should not be too hard to implement this. I've got
a few semi-related TODOs anyway.
