Well, I think that's part of what the original poster is asking for,
really.

A symbolic name that points to both a path and a revision within the
repository. That way, he can reference a tag, and not have to mess with
a possibly hard to remember revision number and potentially unweildy
path string.

I can see the utility of that sort of thing, though I personally *don't*
miss CVS/VSS style tags, having never used either of those products to
any great extent. :-)
