rev-parameter to HTTP front-end

Hi there,

I've been using Subversion for a while now, and it's really nice. I
especially like the option to have a human-friendly front-end through
HTTP (with the cute XSL option, and all - I've written my own
stylesheet). I was thinking about how this could be made to be a
little more functional, though, in a way that would not be hard to
implement (even though I don't have too much knowledge about
Subversion source).

So, I was thinking: it would be useful to have a ?rev= or ?revision=
GET parameter. When using HTTP as the client protocol, there's
probably some extra header that sets the revision to be retrieved, but
for the web frontend, it would be nice to have a parameter that allows
for easy viewing of an old version of a document (making viewcvs etc.
a little less needed).

For bonus points, all the href attributes could be rewritten (though
this could be implemented in the XSL-sheet easily) to use the given
revision. For extra bonus points, also allow for using keywords like
HEAD and BASE in the parameter.

So, would this be worth an issue in the issue tracker? Any thoughts?
