Personally, I'm hesitant to add commands that do lots of work server
side, such as regex maching over large amounts of data. I'm also
hesitant to add commands that result in downloading potentially huge
amounts of data, so I'd worry a lot about recursive greps on directory
trees. The infrastructure to implement a historical grep on a file is
already there though, the underlying functionality used to implement
'svn blame' could fairly easily be used to implement something like
that, if anyone was interested enough to try.
