If you rename from 'Foo' to 'Bar' at revision X, revisions < X don't contain a
'Bar', which is why you can't 'svn cat' it.
People are aware of this fact, but this is not easy to do right, as the same
path within a repository could have been populated by different items
throughout the history, at least I think that was the problem.

That's not specific to TSVN, but a feature of SVN.
