Find a deleted file and WC-NG

Hi Everyone,

Recently @users;
I asked for some help with how to find revision / path of a file that was previously deleted.

In one of the responses, Stefan suggested that I look through this thread;

and also mentioned the use of;
svnsearch and fisheye for data mining the repository.

My question isn't so much about getting an answer to my original question - but does follow-on from it.

Will WC-NG and more specifically the fact that it is a SQLite database, allow me to find the revision and path of a deleted file, more easily : directly via SQL / SQL Wrappers?

Does an appropriate function / API already exist for this in 1.7?
And if not - would it seem like an appropriate task for a newbie, from a SVN development POV (me), to take on?

There's a learning curve to be sure;
I need to get acquainted with HACKING / the header files / etc..

But assuming I get through all that;
It seems like much of the work will be in SQL with appropriate wrappers / public API - which at the surface doesn't seem like an unsurmountable task.

I suppose what I am after now is;
Do data mining functions exist already in 1.7 - thus - "nothing to do here".

Is it an appropriately task for a new developer to take on?
I'm happy to get talked into / out of it - as existing developers you have a far greater understanding than I do.
