Subversion will follow the path change backwards through
history unless you specify --stop-on-copy.
Tracing path changes forward through history (i.e. from lower to
higher revision numbers) is AFAIK not possible. This is likely
irrelavent to your use case though.
(And maybe this will change in 1.5, I vaguely remember cmpilato telling
me this was going to change in 1.5, but I might be mistaken.)
Play with a test repository and you'll see.
