That's because of the way svn branching works: you make a copy. At the
moment, there's no way to ask svn: 'given this file, show all copies
ever made of it." It's a brute-force search at the moment.

Nope. As a pseudo-hack, you can run 'svn log -v' on a URL that
represents the root of the repository, and then grep for the filename,
assuming the filename never changed.
