That's pretty much it. We may have to use branching to accomplish our
goals; I'm also going to investigate properties further. I agree with
Phil that properties should be able to do what I need, but I'll have to
do some more thinking on translating the labeling scheme currently in
use here to something that we can easily insert/update/select with the
svn prop* tools and some scripting.

Thanks for your help.
