Well, you are right in that you can't get that information from the log of
a file. On the other hand, it would be still very useful to see, and it's
also possible to display it using the same method Work Bench uses.

I still would like to have this feature in TortoiseSVN. Basically if I
choose to use TortoiseSVN I would have to use the revision graph every time
where the log would be enough. In my opinion it would be possible to
generate a database which maps revision numbers to tags and branches on
request, then we could display it just like PySVN Work Bench.

As I understand generating the revision graph is slow so generating this
mapping infrequently and use this in log displays still makes sense for me.

I would like to know if others are interested in this feature, too. Also,
I don't know Subversion enough and this solution may have serious
drawbacks, so I would like to know your opinion about this.

I already know that the tag/branch name to revision number mapping
is not readily available and I also know that there are workarounds to get
this so I don't really need it either, and also this is due to the design
Subversion, so you don't have to tell that to me. :)
