I'm not sure why maxb's argument is such a big deal. We already have a
strategy for the scenario he describes -- we use it already in all of
our history-tracing peg-rev stuff in svn 1.1.

For example, if I run 'svn cat -r 50 foo.c@HEAD', we're already
checking that foo.c in HEAD is the same object as foo.c in r50. If
not, we throw an error. I don't see why 'svn log' couldn't do the same
sanity check.
