Umm..  I honestly don't know.  You can see the script in SVN
right now, but it assumes a single tree, and it assumes it's already checked
out.  I don't know how hard it would be to set up something to watch for a new
tag and build if it sees one.  Such a script would need to:

1. poll the tags URL in the repo
2. see if there's a new tag (not sure how to detect this)
3. if it sees a new tag, do an svn checkout
4. run the daily_build on the new checkout

I'd be happy to sdet up the nightly job to do this but we'd have to solve step
#2 first.  I think steps 3 and 4 are relatively straightforward.  
However there
still might be some configuration to do.

There should have been a 2.3.1 build off whatever was HEAD at 2am EDT, which
looks like it should be "correct".
