You can do it, but it is very unsupported and may break with any future
update as it relies on an internal implementation detail of svn's DAV
protocol.

Assuming that http://site.net/pub/ is the full URL to yr repos root, then

http://site.net/pub/!svn/bc/22/

will show the repos at r22.

If you are creating a web-based tool, you should access the repos via
the bindings API, the above should really only be used if you want to
slap a URL into your browser to see an old version of a file (even then,
you should probably just use svn cat).
