  You can already have that behaviour with the pre-rev-propset hook.

  Perhaps what you *really* want is a "svn revpropfind" command which
  makes it easy to run queries against property data? This would
  make it relatively simple to do:

    svn co -r`svn revpropfind --firstonly eq svn:label Build_123 $URL` $URL

  Some of the metadata in the repository is a little hard to get at
  right now (read: not as efficient as it could be).
