There's also the concept of 'labels', provided by software like Perforce and
presumably others, which has been mentioned on this list before.

In Perforce, a label is simply way to reference a particular revision... very
similar to the CVS tag mechanism. I know this has been mentioned on the list
before, but I'm not seeing a feature request that matches this.
