   I knew you'd suggest that. From other hand, I've been told by you and
others in this forum not to create tags/branches from working copy
because it may have local changes. Also it does not work when you need
to tag multiple projects. Look at Subversion's own project structure as
an example. It is not that uncommon when you have to tag 3 to 10
projects when releasing new version of Eclipse plugin. How Subclipse is
helping with that?

   Right. But then this property won't appear under working copy checked
out from branch or tag. Note that tagged copy not supposed to be changed
and that could be enforced on server.

   Am I that bad in explaining what am I looking for? Or you just
pretending that you don't want to understand what I am asking?
   I think it is quite common use case that been asked several times in
this mail list. I'd say it is worth a FAQ entry...
