internal dynamic link ("alias")

Greetings, all,

I've looked and I don't see a way to make this happen, so I thought
I'd post and a) see if anyone else thinks this makes sense and b)
if it does make sense, if it is possible to integrate.

I have my three branches (well, two, technically) set up:

Dev/$DEV_VERSION (typically major.minor.dev-rev)
Release/$RELEASE_VERSION ($DEV_VERSION with only the first two components)

I would like to have a way internally to track a given branch as "LATEST"
or whatever other label I should like to give it; i.e. have it so that
instead of referencing a specific revision, it will actually link to the
head of a working branch which I could then assign the symbolic name

I can do this in the filesystem for my own internal use, but it would be
nice to do it in-tree so that I can point other people to this dynamic
target, i.e. "Hey, just go to https://.../svn/Dev/LATEST" and it will
automatically pick up the changes.

I know I can work within LATEST instead, but then I don't have a referent
branch giving me the versioning I want to maintain -- I really do have
a need for this.

Thank you in advance for the courtesy of a reply.
