It's a little unclear what you're asking for; do you want to be able
to search the contents of every revision of every file? If you want
to do this, you'll have to make creative use of the Spotlight and
Subversion APIs... wouldn't be that difficult, though. If you're just
trying to search the files you already have checked out, there are
plenty of existing tools out there.
