Branches & tags aren't "properties" of a given file in SVN, they're
just specially-named copies. Individual files don't have version
numbers, it's a global revision number (file X was modified at
revisions Y & Z for example).

There's a whole section of the Subversion manual just for CVS
converts. http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.forcvs.html
