branch comprehensive file history

I have a question on the revision history of files/directories:

We use svn and edit all files mainly in the "trunk/" directory.
Sometimes we make a "svn copy" for release or labeling purposes.
The copies are saved in "tags/" or "branches/".

Assume, we have a File "file.txt" which has been copied to
"branches/release1/file.txt" from trunk (let it be rev3) and later
copied from rev12 (also from trunk) to another dir "tags/v1.1/file.txt"
And perhaps all, the original and the copies, have been edited after
the last svn copy.

now,is there a possibility to get the history (like "svnlook history")
of the file "file.txt" including the history of the file in each copy?
(just like a binary tree, marking each revision where the file was

one way is to "svnlook history" each copy and merge the info manually or
with an external program. But I am searching for a handier way to do
