Disclaimer: I've never tried this.

However, I believe that because branches and tags are just cheap copies,
essentially the tip of every branch and the whole of every tag are
available via Webdrive-type-clients.

What you cannot do is mount revision N of a particular path.
Of course, you could create a tag at that revision, and simply mount
that tag.
