RA layer change needed?

From: Sander Striker <striker_at_apache.org>

To be able to support:

 svn cat -rX FILE


 svn diff -rX:Y FILE

where FILE is some file in the working copy, we'd need something new in
the RA layer. At least IMHO ;). What would be needed is the following:

  given FILE at revision Z, go back to revision X and return its content (and path?).

Why would you want this? Consider a file that was moved after revision X,
but prior to revision Z. Simply retrieving FILE@X (by path) could result in
getting an entirely unrelated file that just happens to be at that location.

Especially for doing diffs this is usefull, since you want to compare the contents
of the file between rev X:Y, no matter where they are located at X or Y.

Maybe this can be done using the update editor, I'm not sure.
