Just the path, not the content.

  svn diff -rX:Y directory

What is the "content" of a directory? Once the path is known the
content can be obtained if required.

Perhaps we really need a history function, something that returns the
revisions and paths at which an item changed. A bit like the verbose
log function but without the overhead of the messages or the entries
within a directory. A function to tell me the essentials about the
path: it changed at revision X, it got copied from here at revision Y.
