Thanks for the suggestion. Yes that helps for "svn log" (however, we
try to do everything from our IDE, which is IntelliJ, and it's svn
plugin doesn't have such a feature). Also, our build tools, which use
just the native command line client, suffer from the same problem of
slow log.

I don't think it helps for blame, as far as I tried. I also tried with
a web viewer like FishEye, which is supposed to cache line-change and
log data in a database. However, it also choked massively on this big
file with lots of changes (and it's not really practical to open such
a big file in a browser).

Johan
