Tool for browsing revisions wanted

I plan to use svn as repository for keys, certificates and CRL's. As a
forthcoming ;) maintainer of an Fips-140 compliant S/MIME signature and
crytoservice system (PKI) I need to store all certificates and revocation
lists during time in order to provide legal proof of validity of a
signature even if the certificate was revoked due to some reson (f.e.
stolen / lost keys, etc.).

Here comes svn into the play: Since every certificate / revocation list
must have it's own serial number it would be handy if some shell script /
web page or whatever enters the serial number into the cert or crl equal
to the revision number the certificate will be checked into svn. This
works with Apache and mod_chroot.

This would be the easy part.

But what happens if I have to search for a certificate in the repository
for a certain user or with a certain serial number. It would be very
helpful if I have a tool that allows me to browse the contents of the
files in the repository without checking out but for distinct revisions,
what mod_svn unfortunately isn't able to do.

Any hints to applications or projects which have this feature, no matter
what OS, or a webclient would be extremly helpful.

Many thanks for help,

Robert Welz
