it's probably VERY useful -

cvs status -v foo
File: foo Status: Up-to-date

    Working revision: 1.4
    Repository revision: 1.4 /CVS/Project/foo,v
    Sticky Tag: (none)
    Sticky Date: (none)
    Sticky Options: (none)

    Existing Tags:
         foo-V01-00 (revision: 1.1)
         foo-V02-00 (revision: 1.2)
         foo-V03-01 (revision: 1.3)
         foo-V04-03 (revision: 1.4)

this would require an svn command for something like
'list all node-copies of this file|dir that currently exist in -rHEAD
below /tags or /branches'
