Revision naming and patch generation

Hello everbody!

I haven't followed the discussions about named revisions lately, so what I
think below might be complete nonsense. (It may be simple because merging of
patches isn't as easy as I think).

If we can name revisions (which are possibly indexed for speed), then the
name(s) can be seen as a name for the *change* from revision n-1 to n.
If a name can be given to multiple revisions, then it should (?) be possible
(technically - surely isn't implemented yet) to get a patch which has *all*
changes with this name.

So if there is a file, which gets changed in revisions 10-20, and the even
revisions are named "taskA" and the odd "taskB", then maybe it's possible to
say
        svn diff --task-name "taskA"
to get a patch which includes every such change.

Is that possible? Easy, hard?

I'm thinking of working on some software and doing this fixing some bugs.
Then I'd have to deliver distict patches for the various tasks, and possible
track these around some "vendor"-versions.
So a shortcut like above could be useful.

Regards,

Phil
