I'm -0 on using up -l for that. I could see -L, in a pinch, but even
that's pushing it.

Then again, I never run 'svn log --limit'. I wish we had a better,
non-anecdotal sense of what people are actually doing. Have you
considered polling over on users@ (*without* saying why you're asking,
of course :-) ) to find out how much people run 'svn log --limit'?
