Maybe you're mad XD, but your comments are sane enough ;). Using log
messages for in-band information is a bad thing. I'm using log messages
in absence of labels to mark revisions :(.

After all the messages in this thread, i still don't know subversion
developers position about labels. This is a open question to them: Is
somebody working on this feature or is definitely discarded to add a
feature to add mnemonic labels to revisions? I don't have intentions to
start another big thread ;), i'd only like to know how this fits into
subversion future development plans.
