Another former CVS users here, one who likes subversion but one who
also finds the lack of tags unnerving.

One thing I have is a tags.txt file (that I also keep in subversion),
and in it I keep notes. For some notable versions (e.g., "New feature
X is working, I think") I note the date and version number along with
a short comment.
