Revision graph functionality?

We've just converted a cvs repository to svn, and the resultant
repository is 5 GB with about 79k revs. A number of cvs users were
accustomed to using TortoiseCVS to view revision graphs of salient
files. Of course, this is dead easy and lightning fast with cvs since
every file's genealogy is represented in a single file in the
repository. TortoiseSVN will produce revision graphs, but since that
requires parsing the log history for the entire repository, it is
impractically slow to put it mildly.

Although I reference the Tortoise guis as examples, my real questions
are wrt subversion proper:
* Are changes that could enable rapid construction of revision graphs
on the svn future feature list? I imagine this would be quite an
undertaking, but it can't hurt to ask.
* Are there 3rd party scripts that will cook up revision graphs, or
perhaps, a database which could be queried dynamically to make
revision graphs? I'm imagining a tool that could be run nightly to
build the database indices.
* We're on fsfs now, but would the performance be dramatically
different with bdb?

Thanks for any comments,
