I'd say the best solution you have here is to use changelists.

they're not the perfect solution for you, but might get you closer to
what you want.

Alternatively, you can add a property to a file, and list them, so you
can mark files as you want. I'm not sure this solves your problem fully
either, but there are 2 items for you to investigate further.

Personally, I stick TODO: markers in my code too. Some of them are still
there :)
