Well, a suggestion from me would be:
URL | revision | predecessor/successor URLs | LOG Messages | Author |
Date |

URL -> predecessor URL or URL -> successor URLs is a 1-to-N
relationship, each line in the list view can show one relationship with
a flag showing the direction (forward/backward) of the relationship.

One real big challenge here is to figure in which projects and branches
a trunk file has been used in. The base SVN does not support this
forward history at all, but SVN gets it with it's revision graph
functionality.
