We can get the closets copy from the FS quickly (I wrote an
implementation for FSFS, and it's also doable in BDB)... but it requires
skipping authorization checks on all the committed revisions, which is a
potential security hole. So I'm not sure if we'll ever see this. :/

(mod_authz_svn of course only does security on paths. But we promise to
call the Apache authorization callback for each <rev,path> pair in the
history of a file, and that callback could conceivably behave
differently for different revs. Also, in the future, we may have a true
acl system.)

Issue #1970 if anyone wants to read more on this.
