Support CVS-like consecutive-numbered file revs?

I have a project that's looking to potentially implement a "digital assets"
tracking system with Subversion--or something similar--as it's underlying
database.

One of the useful requirements: have a "consecutively-incrementing"
rev-numbering system on a per file basis. This doesn't happen in
Subversion because of the per-repo rev-uptick control...however...I'm
wondering if Subversion might support such an "additional," per-file
attribute to track only the file revs in addition to the repo revs...so
that I can get a "1, 2, 3, 4..." numbered file-rev set? (yes, that's a
terrible run-on sentence...but I'm a little lean on time.)

If not, and if this requirements remains as important as we suspect for the
"per-file digital asset" system, I suspect that we may use CVS (for I
understand CVS does per-file, incremental number revs) or build a per-file
incremental "smarts" on top of Subversion in a php-based gizmo.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

-Matt
