tags on silge files

The tagging/branching mechanism in Subversion appears to be designed
with complete repositories, or at least large chunks thereof, in mind.
Mostly, this is a good idea, but in some cases, I'd really like to be
able to tag a single file, and have to ability to retrieve that
particular file based on the tag.

Consider this example:
somewhere in the repository is a directory 'documents' which contains
just that. These documents will, entirely independant of each other,
progress through various revisions. For obvious reasons, retrieving
specific revisions of these documents is a needed option.

How would one do this in Subversion? Putting a descriptive tag on the
entire directory is not feasable. Putting each document in it's own
subdirectory and tagging those is not nice either.

Thanks in advance for any help.
