Wha? That's like betting a beer connoisseur a bottle of Miller Lite. :-)

I'm fine with that. If you look at the revision I just committed
(r34070), I have a simple TODO there:

      /* ### TODO: someday we should parse *all* query args into an
             apr_table_t, the way mod_form does. */

Shockingly, you'd think that either apache or apr would provide an API
to parse a long query string into a table, but I'm not seeing
anything. Any volunteers?

Beyond the parsing part, I guess the code would have to do more than
simply pretend the person had typed "!svn/bc/REV/path" -- it would
actually have to make an fs call to follow history to the peg. Not a
huge deal.
