simulating tags like CVS

I've few questions on tags on checking out specific files.
e.g take the directory structure.

  / -----2.java 'Z' is tagged as PROD_FIX_1.
    / -----3.java

If you take the above scenario, if you tag the directory 'Z' (say tag
name PROD_FIX_1)in CVS and say checkout X using the tag PROD_FIX_1,
we'll get the entire directory structure shown above along with the
files under 'Z' where as in case of SVN(checkout /tags/PROD_FIX_1)
we'll get only the directory 'Z'and all the files under 'Z'. Is this

Is there any way of simulating tags behaviour using Subversion just
like CVS without tagging the root directory (X)?

One more question:
Is there any way to give a natural language name to a tag in Subversion?
If not atleast can we get the same behaviour By writing some scripts
( may be using perl,python,c,c++ ....,)?
or by setting meta data(properties)?
(e.g By setting the properties like Prod_build_lable='PROD_FIX_1' and
check out files where Prod_build_lable='PROD_FIX_1' )

Any experiments/ideas from any one?
Is there any concept of FLOATING TAGS in CVS or SVN just like PVCS?
