Older versions through http-repository browsing

Hi folks!

The documentation
states very clearly, that browsing is limited to the latest release of the
repository. The only explanation for this impossibility is that this is an
issue of WebDAV/DeltaV and can't be solved with mod_dav_svn, only if the
browser knows how to handle PROPFIND requests and such.

What unit in the chain


does not allow a "simple" revision number selection, for example by
appending ?r=<rel>" to the URL?

So instead of:




or maybe (worse than the former because the URI does not match the repos):


Why is it possible to browse the 'latest' release without PROPFIND, but
selecting a revision cannot be done by 'masquerading' (escaping) the
request for higher layers not allowing such a construct directly?

Or is it just for the purpose of making Apps like ViewCVS or WebSVN sell
at all? ;-)
