Giving 'alias' names to revisions seems like a perfect excuse to use a
revision property.

The only question is -- do make it a "standard" property, like
svn:revision-names? If we do, then it would be nice if svn_repos.h
(svn_fs.h?) had a utility function to search all revision proplists
and look for revision(s) which match the propval.

Otherwise, I guess you could do this from a python script using the
swig bindings... kinda messy either way, though.
