This is similar to a question I asked a while back but got no reply to.

I was raising the idea of a new command, which given a repository URL
would list the revision span of existence of all objects that have
existed at that path in history.

My idea was for 'svn history', yielding something like:

$ svn history svn://server/some/path/to/object
3:300
350:500
600:700

Showing that different objects existed at that URL three times in
history, between the revision numbers shown. I'm sure that more
information could be supplied for each instance too, such as the type of
node (file, directory etc).

I for one would find that *extremely* useful.
