discovering changesets affecting files only under a certain path in a repo

In SVN it is possible to get the latest revision (and revision history)
under a specific path, vs for the entire repo. If I get SVN info for a
directory, the revision that will be returned in that info will be the
latest check in that affected any file under that directory. Is this
possible in Mercurial without basically looping through all the changesets
and checking if any of the changed files fall under a certain path? I am
aware of the possibility of setting a separate repo for each path for which
I want to perform such an operation, but I don't want to do that because it
would unnecessarily fragment by source tree. The purpose of this is to
detect changes to dependencies of certain projects.
