How about the use case "In which releases did we ship exactly rNNN of
file foo.c?", a question you might need to ask if you've recently
learned that foo.c contains a dangerous bug.

I've wanted this feature in Subversion for a long time, too. Of
course, it can be implemented as an external DB outside the Subversion
repository, but it would be nice if Subversion had a way to say "Show
me all paths by which a given 'node revision' may be reached". That
is equivalent to showing all the tags and branches it's on.
