how to see which "tags" have been applied to a revision of a file on the trunk

Hi all,

I'm in the process of evaluating subversion, and so far am very happy with
what I see. I've setup a repostiory using the cvs2svn script which worked
very well. I've been able to answer just about all my questions through
reading the various documentation sources but have one outstanding question.

If I receive a bug report from the field, and I am browsing the source based
on the stack trace, I will typically be on the trunk but would like an easy
way of knowing if the particular file I'm looking at has changed since the
tag in question. In CVS what I would do here is a cvs log [filename] and I
can see which tags have been applied to which versions. However, because
svn copies files, rather than tags them, I don't see any way I can see what
tags have been applied to a file (ie where a file has been copied to). I
also want to do this sort of thing when making a new tag to check what has
changed since the last released version - in this case I'm typically
interested in a whole directory rather than just one file (here cvs diff -r
[tag] is what I use).

I assume other people out there have encountered this scenario as well and
am interested to hear how they have handled it. As I understand it this is
one of the drawbacks of copying (with history) rather than purely tagging.
Any opinions/suggestions would be appreciated.
