Suppose I simply specify the revno's "alias" when I commit:

  % svn commit -r mytagwhatever

The name "mytagwhatever" is now a synonym for the revno
on that branch. (No need for any commit-hooking ;-)

Of course I'd also need a way to associate "mytagwhatever"
with the revno after I did the commit (if I didn't when
I commited). Would be nice if I didn't have to invent a
new subcommand for that if an existing one wasn't too much
of a stretch (like svn log or svn propset <<revname>>).
