This is a temporary situation. The correct behavior for svn log is to
only show the revisions in which IDEAS changed. However, we have
temporarily disabled the server's ability to pay attention to any of
the paths passed to 'svn log' while we work out some optimization
issues.

Not sure what you mean when you are asking someone to "read you the
revision ID number in foo.c"

  -- do you mean for them to run 'cvs status' and see what revision
     foo.c is currently at in their working copy? If so, 'svn status
     -v' is what you're looking for.

  -- If you're talking about the $REVISION$ keyword substitution, it
     is planned for Subversion, but we're not there yet.
