Not a crazy idea.. this could be implemented purely in the 'svn'
client using unversioned properties on the repository, e.g.,
"svn:tag:RELASE_1_0" -> "1432".

But that has the disadvantage that all tags are "global" to the
repository.. maybe then per-subdirectory tags (using similar versioned
properties) would make more sense... ?
