I understand that you can use Subversion without first class tags.
Heck, I used SCCS, and it had no concept of tags or branch names. We
simply used shell scripts and text files, but that doesn't mean we
didn't miss them.

First class tags will allow us to do things such as using tags instead
of revision numbers. People who are familiar with other revision
