Subversion equivalent of CVS' Attic?

Hey folks,

About 6-8 months ago (maybe a bit more?) I migrated our team of about a
dozen developers from CVS to Subversion.

After some teething pains, we have pretty much everything under control,
I believe.

One feature we miss, however, is CVS' Attic/ directory. On a fairly
regular basis, somebody needs to go revision-hunting looking for the
right revision to restore to trunk. It's a trial-and-error process. We
currently have about 25000 changesets, and it can be a pain.

Am I missing something which provides this sort of functionality?
Ideally I could do something like 'svn log --show-deleted
https://foo/bar/baz' and/ have a list of files which were moved/deleted
from /bar/baz/

If not, before I file a bug in the tracker, would anybody else find such
functionality useful? I'm thinking particularly for frontends - for
instance, a toggle-box in ViewCVS which would display what my developers
would call "the hidden entries" ;)
