Is it possible to set them on only the revisions that exist
in your workspace as you commit? As I've mentioned a few
times before, it is a common problem that you want to
tag an exact match to your workspace, including changes
you've committed, but _not_ include revisions committed
to the repository by others that you haven't updated to
in your working copy. CVS lets you do this and it is
often necessary for concurrent development work. Subversion
mentions the situation in the manual but provides no way
to deal with it in the repository. You can copy the workspace
to a tag which won't match any revision state of the trunk
or branches, but you are on your own to commit separately
to wherever else the ongoing work belongs - and then there
is nothing to associate those commits with the separate
tag copy. If a different mechanism is going to be added,
it should be something that can handle these needed
mixed-revision states.
