-D date -j HEAD might do something but it's more likely to use the 
default (checked out) branch, rather than HEAD (well *some* commands use 
the checked out branch for dates..., others don't.  Wonderfully consistent!)

The whole tag thing needs sorting out... log uses a different system 
again, checkout is slightly different as well.

A centralised/consistent tag syntax is definately something worth 
doing...  won't be for a little while though I think.
