Yes, I agree. I think this is a valid use case (would also be useful
for finding out when a particular file was deleted, for which you now
also have some "bisecting" to do). And even if it's slow (as slow as a
user searching it by hand), it would still be useful.

So, as far as I'm concerned, I think you can file this as a new
feature request in the issue tracker (maybe first search for any
similar outstanding requests).
