Wow. Hm. I wonder if more experienced CVS users on this list can
address your use-case better. Perhaps properties are what you want,
as you say... Subversion doesn't "tag" files the way RCS does; all
you can do is make cheap copies on the server.

So, in your ideal world, it would be possible to type

   $ svn cp . mytag1

And voila, your mixed-revision working copy magically appears in some
'automatic' tags-area on the server?
(i.e. http://foo.com/repos/tags/mytag1 is created)

My only comment on this is that perhaps that the "default" tags path
can live in an .svnrc?
