Yes, the revision control part is always there. While we tend to use
tags to get simple human-generated, human-readable names for specific
revisions (through the convention of never committing changes there),
all you really have to do to be sure you have a particular version is
use the path_at_revision syntax in your workflow. It is impossible for
that to ever be changed through subversion client operations.
