Its not totally flexible. Its a database that has optimized some queries,
but others are very expensive.

One of the use cases that I want to solve is being able to know which
tags an item belongs to though out its history. This is an expensive
operation in Subversion, basically you have to retrieve all the
changed paths data and notice when the item you care about is referenced,
taking into account renames etc.

Some form of symbolic naming could help with this problem.

A way of telling subversion that this copy is special (a tag)
could help as well.
