Note that there was some more text above that discussing other
possible alternatives (one of which was tagging).

Yes. That was the first alternative discussed (and the person
wanted a way for that to happen automatically). Speaking for
me personally, I wouldn't use a tag unless what I really wanted
was a tag that included a corresponding working-copy that would
show up in the svn pathspace. I would not do that for every
commit, only for "special ones".

However, I would still want a way to associate a name with a
revision-number that was simply an alias for the revision-number
and didn't create a new copy in the pathspace because I don't
want that level of visibility for every commit - just the
ability to use a pseudonym for global revision number. The
example I gave of a 'NAME=' revision keyword would do this,
and (unlike a property I assume?) be able to be used in
revision ranges given to svn log and svn diff.
