Unfortunately, 'svnlook' doesn't retrieve this information in
convenient form. Your best bet is to write a program using the
language bindings (i.e., in Python, Perl, or Java). A non-elegant
workaround would be to use 'svnlook cat' to put the file's contents
into a tmp file outside the repository, then examine the tmp file's
size.
