You mean apply just the part of the changesets that touches the file
you're interested in?  I'm not sure there is so much to gain by doing
so.  First because you still have to extract the latest cached revision
and this can take time, even if you ask `tar' to just extract a single
file; second because you still have to fetch and unpack all the
subsequent changesets as you mentioned.
