Don't "svn log" and / or "svn blame" give you this information?

I must be missing something again - if (as I think you've suggested in
previous posts) there's a universally applicable CM methodology, why
would it need to be independently and uniquely implemented at each and
every site? Why not just implement it once (using the various
extension points Subversion provides) and reuse it (or even better,
share it with the wider Subversion user community so that no one else
has to implement it either)?
