I have a question about the date, in the guidelines it is written:
| The date in reference is the date that the checkout was taken.

So when I take a snapshot of revision 123 of a svn repository with the current 
revision 151 and the commit of revision 123 was a week ago, then the alphatag 
has to be:

20070413svn123?

Imho it would make more sence to use the date of the commit of the revision.

Also with respect to git/hg, it would make the checkout better identifiable 
when one would use:

20070413gitABCDEF

with ABCDEF beeing the last six (or any other number of) characters of the 
sha1 hash of the revision.
