The revision graph in TortoiseSVN is probably the closest you can get.
It can be quite slow. (Never try this on a repo with 51000 revisions.)

I've been entertaining creating a database from the "svn log" of the
root of the repository and updating this database upon
each commit in a hook script. It would cross reference the
copy-from information to collect a list of places the file was

I could then create a full clearcase like version tree in a reasonable
amount of time.
