Me too.

I have mi fingers itching to write a simple perl script, say, 'svn-label',
that would store a {symbolic-lable => revision_number} corespondence in
repository properties and would permit command like:

svn-checkout -r LAST-KNOWN-GOOD ...
svn-merge -r VERSION-1.2:VERSION-1.5 ...
svn-export -r RELEASE-6 ...

and so on (simply by decoding label to rev number and calling a regular 'svn'

Any companions? ;)

NB: for those who think that labels are foreign and unnecessary to Subversion,
let me draw your attention to the fact there are already two labels widely
used: 'HEAD' and 'PREV' ;)
