No, I can not.

Which revision from 2005-11-11 is ment if I have 20 of them on that date?

Besides, paper_I_have_sent_on_2005.11.11 could be checked in on, say,
2005-11-09, or on 2005-11-12. Dates are dates, revision names are revision
names (maybe the example with the date is not the best one). See the point?

Besides, every revision has an associated date, but only few would labels.

No, I must not have any path. Revision and repository is absolutely enough. I
do not keep unrelated projects in one repo. When I have a symbolic label *of
the whole repo*, sorting out which tree contains what is a matter of project

Having a label on entire repository revision is *exactly* what I want :).

Think of 'HEAD' or 'PREV' names which are exactly the symbolic labels for the
whole repo, and are very usefull (despite the fact that they change with each
