Except that the current implementation of --limit in 1.2 doesn't seem to
provide any better performance than doing a full log and filtering the
result (see http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2290).
This is a shame-- I would really like to use this for interfaces to log
that are simple and efficient (e.g. dynamically generate the RSS feed of
changes on a path by sending "svn log --limit 10 --xml TARGET" through
an appropriate XSLT).
