I can see the use for this in the log dialog, having originally come
from VSS myself. One thing I find missing in SVN is the lack of
forward copy history, so if you look through the history of a file you
can't see the points at which you took tags, or changed a version
number header. Interleaving the history of the version file or the
tags directory would solve this.

But like you I don't see a good way of producing a UI. I guess you
could set a tsvn:log-interleave folder property which tells you the
URL to get the log for. That is probably the easy part. Getting 2 logs
and interleaving them whilst preserving all the functionality of the
log dialog sounds like a potential mess.
