Er, this is tricky. Suppose I type in "http://host/some/dir?p=x&r=y".

This wil locate dir_at_p, then follow the directory back in time to
revision y (where it might exist at a different location).

The children displayed in the output are therefore all being displayed
at revision Y, and at some (possibly new) path. My first instinct is
to point out that they should all therefore have the ?p=y bit attached
to their hrefs, but this doesn't take into account the possibly new
parental path. :-/
