Hmm, looks like I spoke too soon: While this works well with added and
updated files, it won't find files that have been deleted in the
previous transaction.

While

     /home/y/bin/svnlook history -r 3157 /path/to/repo file

finds a file deleted in revision 3158,

     /home/y/bin/svn info -r 3157 file:///path/to/repo/file

reports

     svn: File not found: revision 3158, path '/file'

Any way around that?
