Hi Brad!

Yes, actually, you can attach any arbitrary properties you want to
revision trees.

Or, with today's svn, you'd just run

     $ svn propset -revprop -r3 revname MyRevName

This is the feature that doesn't yet exist. Ideally, we'd want all svn
subcommands to understand "-r NAME", and look for a specific property on
each revision.
