   I wouldn't say it is impossible.
   Since that property is on the project level you can scan trough all
tags/branches it is describing once and save discovered revisions locally.

   Let's start over. I could be wrong, but here is what I saw:

   1) head version
   2) create tag1 from head
   3) history for head shows tag1
   4) history for tag1 shows no tag1
   5) create tag2 from head
   6) history for tag2 shows tag1 but not tag2
   7) create branch1 from tag1, history for branch1 shows no tag1.

   I think 7) is a big problem. 6) and 4) also problems but probably
smaller ones.

   regards,
   Eugene
