doesnt sound logical to me.... I mean, URL can only refer to existing
entities, by definition of a version control system, a deleted file, no
longer exists but in history. so, unless the URL has someway of denoting
where(which point in time) the file actually existed ( lo, behold, isnt
it called revision?!) , the URL would be pointing to a non-existing
entity(doesnt exist 'today')

I hope I have expressed myself well enough to be understood!
