Sorry - I must have missed the post.

I just went back and reread the thread. The proposal is to always create a
tag for each important build, and build from that tag and then use
$HeadURL$. Since tags are logically read-only, $Rev$ or $WorkingRev$ offers
no extra information. $HeadURL$ says it all.

Given these premises, nothing is wrong with this idea. As far as I'm
concerned, I'm happy with it, assuming that it is straigtforward to
construct a pre commit hook that rejects every kind of commit except a
non-replacing copy directly to the tags root.

Two more or less obvious minor comments:
* If tags are not read-only, someone may change or replace the tag contents,
and this system breaks.

* In most other circumstances using svn there is always a choice between
tagging and refering to the tag, or use the URL and rev. In this case
however, the URL+rev is not available.
