I posted this earlier to the users list, and wanted to get some further
input from this list.

attached mail follows:


A while back, there was a request for the ability to grep through the
source tree of subversion.

http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?listName=users&msgNo=6804

The response mentions using blame, but specifically I would like to
search for (for example) some structure that existed at one point that
was removed and what version it was removed from.

The problem is that using svn blame seems to only produce the up-to-date
snapshot of a given version. What I want is the last version the string
was seen in.

If there is a way of doing this without regressing through every version
of a file, I would like to know, and if there is currently no way of
doing this, I believe it would be a valuable feature to Subversion.
