I have a script which I use to apply my tags which gives an effect similar to
what you want I think.
when it applies a tag it does the following:
1) checks out the project in tmp (security issues are ignored)
2) edits a file at the head of the tree by appending to the file my comments
and other information I want trapped like the tag name and its relation to the
release schedule (for me the file is called version.lst)
3) commits the change to version.lst using the comment I input.
4) applies the tag to the checked out baseline.

when I use this lets me see where each of my tags has been applied in
relation to the baseline changes.
I'd crawl over an acre of 'Visual This++' and 'Integrated Development
That' to get to gcc, Emacs, and gdb.  Thank you.
