Supporting the "Labels" feature of CVS in SVN.

Hi,

Does anyone know how to support the Labels feature from CVS in SVN?

For a repository for documents, we labeled a particular file with
Document version X.
Document version X is not the CVS revision number, it is the version
of the document itself, and this version only changes on a release.
As changes were made to the document, the X label stayed with the file
as the CVS revision number changed, until we had finished the draft at
which point the document is released, and the label on future versions
is then X+1.
We could then retrieve documents individually based on the Label.
We could then also late the current document, and see it's history,
with the labels going back to the first draft.

How does one do this in SVN?

Kind Regards

James
