Commands like 'svn co', 'svn up', 'svn switch', as well as the modules
subsystem operate on URL:s, and if desired you can supply a working
revision if you don't mean HEAD.

Alternatively, they can also refer to a tag, obviously without the need to
specify revision.

So in all these cases, svn has two equally promoted ways of dealing with
the concept of specifying a point in space and time: either you make a tag
or you remember the URL and working revision tuple.

But, when it comes to marking the files of a checked out ws, svn is lacking
a $WorkingRev$ keyword. The consequence is that svn will not be able to
record both the URL and working revision in the files [without external
help]. Thus it would IMHO only fully support one model, the one where you'd
make a tag and always imply HEAD.
