Ok, but what if you don't know that a has been became to b?
How do you find this out? If there is myriad files it would be real pita
to try find out what has happened to a.

I think that it would be really nice if there is something like that:

(Precond: a dosen't exist at the moment)

$ svn please_tell_me_what_has_happened_to_this_item a.txt
a -> b at revision xyz

Even better:

$ svn please_tell_me_what_has_happened_to_this_item a.txt
a -(21)-> b
b -(42)-> c
c -(xyz)-> d
d is a's incarnation at the moment

Where inside parenthesis is revision number when this happened.

$ svn please_tell_me_what_has_happened_to_this_item a.txt
a has been deleted at revision xyz

What do you think?

BR, Jani
