I'm not sure if I understand what you guys are talking about.

Done some testing and it seems to do well, thanks. It exports a file 
with its path when the file has been added or modified (compared to the 
previous revision). I think I can easily wrap this in a loop to go 
through all revisions of a repository.

However, it would be even better if it would ignore cheap copies as 
these do not not contain that much new information. Maybe I can catch 
most of these if I ignore pathnames that contain "tags" or "branches".
