your gui should not presume that a project even uses "tags", and
certainly not assume they use some organizational layout.

I myself work on a gui interface to svn. we just present a file browser
view. that's it. whatever the user wants to do is up to him.

as you point out, svn has not branch, label or tag, why should your
tool? these concepts are grafted onto svn by users of other sccm tools
to aid in comprehension.
