Yep. ViewCVS's svndbadmin tool does exactly this, basically crawling
a repository for commit information (in full, or incrementally) and
squirreling that away into a MySQL database. ViewCVS then provides a
Web-based query interface into that database. I can't vouch for the
completeness of SQL-stored data -- I imagine that since svndbadmin was
modeled after cvsdbadmin, that there are piece of information not
stored. But it might be a good starting point for someone interested.
