I have a problem with this patch: it only looks in the _past_. That
restriction is unnecessary (and evil :-), you should be able to peg
/foo/bar/baz@100 and ask where it is at revision 200.

I also don't like the name of the funciton, obviously, because it's not
just about files. I suggest svn_fs_get_node_path.
