Dude, that's what tags are for. See http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/
for examples.

Is that because you actually have all 200 of those tags on your local
disk? If so -- don't do that! :-)

You could do that if you had to. I mean, if revision 4589 was the
revision that solidified your product's version 2.01, you could retroactively
change 4589's log message to have some greppable string:

   RELEASE-TAG: ProductName Version MM.mm.pp

But seriously, it sounds like your real problem is that some element
of your workflow, combined with some performance issues with
TortoiseSVN and/or Subversion, is keeping you from doing The Right
Thing.
