Yesterday I thought about tags being labels rather than directories as
currently implemented in svn. In my mind grew the idea of having a tags file
instead of a directory, ie instead of "svn copy /trunk /tags/LABEL", why not
have a file with lines like

LABEL1:5423
LABEL2:5987
etc

in the repository.

With branches, there should probably also be a branch field, or maybe a root
directory with peg revisions?

For example, something like

LABEL1:/trunk@5423
LABEL2:/branches/shuffling@56987
?

With a few scripts that make the information easily accessible, it may be a
flexible way of handling tags.
You could even tag individual files, although I don't see any use for this in
our environment.

I have no idea what happens with tagging if you apply this idea. On the other
hand, it does seem very flexible, tagging files and baselining files should be
possible.
Maybe you can use something like this to solve your tagging problem.
