I think you essentially want Subversion to apply some more heuristics to the
guesswork it already does for forward-directory history searching. Like, if
PATH_at_HEAD doesn't exist, attempt to determine the last revision in which
PATH_at_LAST-REV does exist, and then use *that* for the log search. Right?
