How about supporting revisions using url-encoded variables? e.g.
something like:


Then, when you visit a repository page using a browser, whatever query
string (after the ?) is appended to each link? No need to change the
base URL...

For that matter, we could perhaps extend this later with:


and get a diff between two different versions?


to get the log item for that revision?

Seems to me that it shouldn't be that hard to implement some sort of
scheme that mimics many of the (read-only) functions of the svn client,
just passing parameters through the URL.
