No, it has nothing to do with typing, shell vars or such.

I want to have a meaningfull (for me) symbolic name for a revision in my repo.
I want to be able to check out REVISION_WHICH_CONTAINS_A_VER_2, and not to
need to put down this name and a number on a sheet of paper.

Yes, I know that I can do the same with 'svn cp .../trunk .../tags/' or
whatever, but I have already mentioned why I do not like 'copy tags'
approach. Subclipse docs mentioned in this list
(http://subclipse.tigris.org/branch_tag.html) add another serious reason to
have symbolic names.

I completely agree that this is ugly and non-portable. So you agree that there
IS a problem? ;)
