   i recently scanned the users archive and noticed lengthy threads
   back in september on the topic of referencing a revision number by
   or mnemonic. it appears many users (myself included) want such a

   here are my questions:

     a. have any decisions been made by the subversion team regarding
      whether this feature is something worth implementing?

     b. if so, does such a feature now exist?

   i'm thinking about writing myself a little script (say, 'mysvn') that
   acts as a very thin layer on top of svn to translate tagnames
   to revision numbers.

   it would basically work like this:
  1. mysvn tag [-r revisionnumber] tagname
  -> records the correspondence from tagname to revision number

  2. mysvn update -r tagname
   -> would basically resolve to:
      svn update -r lookuprevisionfor(tagname)

thanks, eitan
