Cool.  Does it get right the cases where containing directories have
been added, renamed, or removed?

I never (quite) put in such a command ("larch
touched-file-prerequists" came closest) because it seemed like a
redundent pain-in-the-ass to write the code to recover a revision's
tree inventory from a descendent or ancestor revision plus intervening
changesets.   I still think that "delta compressed revision libraries" 
are the general solution in this area.
