this will limit you to use one single tool to work with the repository,
because each tool would have its own implementation of 'named tags' and
be incompatible to other tools. there must (should) be a common design
for this. I have created my own 'hack' for named tags to fit my needs
meantime, but I'm unhappy with it because no other tools will ever go
and support them.
