That's why the patch I sent only allows a single target for the
bounded version of log ;-)

If we allow more than one target I believe the correct behavior would
be to get the last N revs for each target, merge them all together and
then return the most recent N from the merged set. I'm not sure if
this is usefull enough to bother implementing it though.
