You're not crazy for wanting per-file revisions.

We even have a theoretical issue (still being discussed, tentatively
slated for svn 1.1) that would add this concept. Go look at issue

We hear you -- or at least I hear you. But now I'm asking you to
listen to me: per-file revision numbers are a vestige of CVS
thinking. You do NOT need them to function. Run 'svn log foo.c' to
see the entire history of foo.c Run 'svn diff -rPREV:COMMITTED foo.c'
to see the last change made to the file.
