Thanks for expressing interest. A lot of us are at EclipseCon this
week, so do not have a lot of time for email. The best thing would be
to look at the feature in TortoiseSVN as an example. Basically, it is
sort of showing the history for a selected folder/file, with the
exception that it is showing you things that History does not show,
such as branches and tags that have been created, and then the history
on those locations. Ideally it would also show the merges that
occurred between these paths, but that would really be a secondary
feature that could come later.

The hard part of this task is really that Subversion does not have
this information readily available. When you make a branch from trunk
in SVN, trunk does not know about the branch. So something needs to
be done to figure out that information.
