Similating "label" feature in Subversion?

I have an interesting situation where labels (rather than "tags") would
be handy. I want to identify a certain revision (r31) as a suitable
rollback point during testing. Since we're testing the functionality of
Subversion, we don't really care about the revisions after this stable
starting point. We care about whether the behavior is as expected, and
we might want to rollback all changes to r31 to start fresh.

Now, this is just the current need. I can forsee where we might want to
identify particular revisions for the future. For example "We created
branch XYZ at this revision". Of course, these labels would have to be
something we can easilly see with a report or by looking at a property
history on the repository.

Do any of you know an efficient way to get this functionality? I took a
quick stab at creating a custom property called "label" but it doesn't
seem to be what I need. When I update it, the original is then hidden
in history and I can't really find it in a repository browser or a
property list in my workspace.
