As I wrote in a private email on this thread, svn DOES have a lot
of features, just do "svn --help". But one feature it does not
have is the Mother Of All source code control features:

  The ability to create an immutable tag at a release point.

To do this, you have to write a custom script or wrapper. Or rely
on a version number. While it's obvious not everyone is using svn
for source code control, this would be a really nice feature.
