Ooops, I was wrong here, sorry. The expanded size of the full text is
already recorded in the filesystem. As Johan pointed out, there is 'svnlook
filesize' which prints this number (which is stored in the FS, so there
is no need to compute it). There wouldn't be a performance hit for 'svn log'.

The below is still valid as-is:
