If you call svn_client_log() on a versioned file, you will get only
the revisions and logs associated with that file. As for caching this
information -- not a good idea, since log messages/authors/dates can
be modified well after the revision is created.

You can already get this information via the log interface. But I
guess I can imagine the RA->get_log() interface taking a flag of some
sort that says "don't bother sending me the revision properties" as a
way to reduce unnecessary network traffic.
