Generally spoken this is a pretty simple matter:

[number of log entries for this file] == "version number"

Since your requirement is compatible enough that
the number of log entries directly corresponds to the version number,
we now at least know
that there is no *extra* state data needed
which would need to be stored in database area.

As an svn semi-expert (insufficiently informed since SvnBridge devel),
I don't know which particular APIs might be available
to retrieve this information in the most direct/efficient manner, though.
You are likely looking for something
which directly returns a shallow "number of log entries"
rather than deep (per-entry) log information...
