I think you are asking for a search for the text of a path/filename
across revisions - but maybe that was the way someone else interpreted
the problem. Following an object's path as it may fan out into
different paths/names or be deleted in later revs is a somewhat
different concept and perhaps closer to what you need to convert your
svn log -r 0:head file://${HOME}/trash/repo/foo_at_3
transparently into
svn log -r 0:4 file://${HOME}/trash/repo/foo_at_3
But, if you had tagged this version or made similar copies elsewhere or
renamed it, wouldn't you want a forward-following system to track into
the new path(s) as it does going backwards now instead of ending when
one of its names was deleted?
