But did you consider how your proposition would work out:
a) svn works on filesets, not files.
b) all repositories start out empty at r0.

Now consider:
r0: start
r50: mkdir /path/to/bigfiles
r100: add /path/to/bigfiles/nohistory
r110: change /path/to/bigfiles/nohistory

Now you do not want nohistory to store history information ;)

Ok, answer the following questions:

1) What to do with with svn -r 100 repopath?
   That one is easy, so I try to answer it: Just give r110 version of nohistory
2) What about revision 20? I mean the directory where nohistory is stored
   doesn't even exist.
