I hadn't seen the @ syntax before.  Does that work with svn natively, 
for all the protocols svn supports?

Also, I don't really see a way to distinguish between the two.  And 
/tags/2.0.1/@HEAD seems like a more appropriate URL for the tag, since 
the directory (not the revision number) indicates the release; in theory 
(or by convention) the revision and the tag are identical in svn, but a 
branch could have updates to HEAD that actually apply to the given revision.
