To expand on this: While subversion elegantly allows tags and branches
to be organised hierarchically, there is no way a tool can infer this
from the layout (consider "/frobulator/tags/releases/7.2" where the
tag is "releases/7.2").

Local conventions is the only recourse here, like adding magic
properties to directories in tags/ and branches/, but this reduces the
commonality that makes standard tools useful - no good if everyone
have to write their own log browser, IDE plug-in, etc.
