Show single file historysub

Showing a single files history is sometimes difficult because the file
list is sometimes to large for a single revision. Our company performs
large merges of external source code into our subversion repository so
the history on our trunk consists of many revisions where the file list
is in excess of 1000 files. When browsing through the log using
TortoiseSVN it is sometimes difficult to spot the single selected file
of which the history is being viewed.

Currently the fact that these items show up in blue does help somewhat
for small numbers of files but when the file list is larger than 1000
files it's still difficult to quickly peruse through the many log
entries to see the changes on the file. I'm thinking that there has to
be a more convenient way to distinguish these files. One idea would be
to have a check box to hide the other noise when searching the log for a
specific file or when viewing history for a specific file. Another
option may be to allow some kind of find-as-you-type feature to the file
list in the log however that would probably not be as useful because of
the size and complexity of the average file path. Whatever the solution
is though any improvement would be appreciated.

TIA~Jeff
