Thanks. svn branches are very much like p4 branches.

p4 labels are closer in spirit to cvs tags (they're applied to at most
one revision of a given file, though p4 branches in filenamespace, so a
label can be applied to multiple branches).

VCP::Dest::svn should be able to batch `svn cp` all files in a
particular svn revision to given them a label pretty easily.

We could also build a VCP::Filter::svnlabeller module that would convert
labels in to special "placeholder" revisions and then VCP::Dest::svn
would be able to `svn cp` them almost exactly like it does for branches.
