possible improvement to svn log with "forward" revision range

Hi,

i am using the svn log command with a "forward" revision range, e.g. "-r N:HEAD".
This fails if the requested path has been deleted in HEAD revision.

When used with "backward" ranges, which are commonly used, e.g. "-r N:1", the result is ok - even if the requested path is not present in revision 1.

I do understand the implications of going "forward" through the history.
But would it be possible to modify the svn log command to be improved for these cases?
If such an implementation would require more computations it could be used as a fallback only if the resource does not more exist in HEAD (resp. in the end-revision).

Thank you for your feedback,
Dirk
