Thomas, I've actually considered this as a mechanism for implementing
tags properly in Subversion, and I believe it could work. I've not
thought carefully about the scalability issues yet, however, and I have
a feeling that implementing tags as properties on each file might not
scale very well. It might also not fit well into the existing efficiency
framework designed into Subversion - eg., minimizing traffic between
server and client for so many commands.
