:-) When I said "that probably doesn't exist in the required form" I meant that a ViewCVS server probably doesn't exist (I couldn't find reference on Subversion's web site to one that views the Subversion repository) in a form that can display a Subversion-style commit as an entity containing log message and a list of changed files.
