Yes, for SRC (RCS-like), it's straightforward to go into the ,v file and
search.  For git, I try to make sure the commit message is as
informative as necessary and then search on the log.  The alternative is
git-timemachine which allows me to go back and forward in time looking
at the buffer.

Having said this, I don't often find myself looking for anything in the
history.  For major alternatives that might come up during the project,
I use branches.  But only with git as I have never figured out how to
get a branch set up in src.
