One thing missing from SVN (and the GUI tools I've seen, though I may
be unaware of the feature) is the ability to see the branch / tag
history of a file as other revision control systems provide. For a
GIU a graph of revisions and their relationships can be nice,
especially if merges between branch/trunk versions are shown. A tree
of labels and branches could be generated from the log data, though
not merge data, however merge data isn't provided by most SCM systems
(Perforce is the only one I've seen which has it built in, though I've
seen it implemented using add-ons to RCS.
