As Mike said, keyword expansions are forthcoming.

Every node in the filesystem remembers the revision in which it was
first created. Nodes have no idea what 'branch' they belong to, since
branches and tags are ordinary directories. But if a file is copied
to a branch or tag area, the copy-history is remembered.

If running 'svn log foo.c' showed you the history of foo.c -- and
traced all the way back to the first revision in which it was created,
as well as the directory in which it originated... that's enough for
your use-case, right?
