RE: I, too, miss tags.

Honestly, while initially during this discussion I was totally ok with a
tag being just another branch, this (below) is probably the most
compelling argument for a real tag/label/stickynote/whatever that I've
seen.

I have developers here who have committed to tags even though I've told
them not to. Sure, we can write a hook or something, but the most
effective beauracracy is the one that's invisible, and exists from the
start.

From a purely technical perspective, what base Subversion functionality
does this break?

From a purely philosophical perspective, what Subversion philosophy does
this violate?

It's version control not religion. Let's save that for vi vs. emacs (vi
forever! :P )
