There *are* URLs that allow you to browse an arbitrary revision in the
repository; but the format of such a URL is opaque and dependent on
the particular repository implementation. (DAV/DeltaV only specifies
a way for a client to "discover" the opaque URL, but doesn't define
the URL syntax directly.) If I told you our syntax, I'd have to kill
you. :-)

So for now, you can only browse head. Later this summer, we'll be
expanding ViewCVS's capabilities to read svn repositories as well --
so you'll get full ViewSVN functionality then.

(You can see revision logs with 'svn log' (try 'svn help log'))
