I answered the first third, because it seemed to me that the last two 
thirds were based on the presumption that the information you seek is 
not readily available. But CVS annotate seems to do exactly what you 
request and it requires no manual effort on the part of our already 
over-burdened maintainers to keep up to date, since it's updated 
automatically with every commit.

In what specific ways does CVS annotate not get you what you're asking 
for? That would probably help the justification for your proposal be a 
bit more clear.
