to use trac with a multi-project repository, i needed trac to be able to browse and operate only on a repository subpath, this also includes some changeset filtering functionality. i've attached the patch needed for this to happen, done against 0.7.1.
some concerns about the patch, while its fairly clean overall, the fact that sync is done implicitly on every svn module usage means that the changed revisions for a particular path are retrieved automatically for each revision. which can be expensive on repositories with thousands of commits. there isn't much alternative if this sort of implicit work is done, else the db will be filled with lots of empty revisions which are not applicable. requiring use of a contrib cron job to achieve explicit syncing would solve this issue.
