Re: Mnemomic names for revisions

This is exactly what is being argued against. SVN
already does this via 'hook scripts' that would enable
the admin to make a specific kind of commit read-only.
However, that is not what is desired (by those -
including myself - arguing for a better label
implementation).

Scripts do not solve everything. They merely raise the
level of understanding and the dedicated-ness of a
full-time admin to a system. Those of us that do not
have the time to dedicate a full time admin to
maintaining the repository (most of us?) need a better
implementation that does not require writing scripts
(learning another API, possibly learning another
programming language, etc. - not that those are bad
things, mind you) of any kind to do a basic feature.
