ugh.. i should go to sleep.. 'it' above meaning reconstructing a node's path

so given a file at /A/B/C.txt
B is copied over to /D in one txn
and C.txt is edited in another txn.

C.txt hasn't been copied but using its current path to get contents for
annotation with its changed revisions won't work as its been moved. does svn
provide any facilities for reconstructing path ancestery? as it is the only
solution i can find is an exhaustive search through a node's revisions
changed set, checking fs_copied_from till the node no longer exists and then
going up to its container or exhausting the rev change set.
