The difference between 'svn log path' and 'svn log URL' is that if no
revision arguments are given path targets default to BASE:1 while URL
targets default to HEAD:1. This difference is deliberate, although I
don't recall the rationale.

We ought to document this behaviour in the 'svn log --help' text.
