tag = symbolic reference to a revision, was: I, too, miss tags.

Sorry, I wasn't clear about that. What I wish for is to have
symbolic names for revisions. It would be possible to put such
a symbol in place of a revision number in places where revision
numbers occur now. Such a symbol could have structure in it
(unlike CVS tags which have no structure).

For example (and maybe it will turn out that I'm making this
more difficult than it needs to be), if I want to see the
commit log for a branch of a branch back to the place where
the first branch occurred, I need to do svn log --stop-on-copy
on the first branch, note the revision number where it starts,
then do svn log -r <revision number> on the secondary branch.
If I'm not mistaken, I have to carry out those steps even if
the origin of the first branch was copied (to, say,
MY-FIRST-BRANCH-BASE, which, I believe, is common practice in CVS).

Thanks for your time, I appreciate it. Best regards,

Robert Dodier
