Clarification sought on using multiple wc targets for 'svn log'

Hi,

I'm investigating the feasibility to re-introduce the support for
multiple wc targets with 'svn log' command. Besides displaying the error
message while passing multiple wc targets, we seem to have implemented
it anyway.

We do this by referring the .entries file in wc area and determining the
associated URL. If i'm right, this is similar to how we handle multiple
targets with url (svn url file1 file2). If this is the case, why
shouldn't we re-introduce this feature? We know that multiple targets
with url work, so, why do we think multiple targets without url wouldn't
work?

Well, the problem is, we couldn't handle working copy dependent revkinds
in both these cases, multiple targets without url and multiple targets
with url. Let it be so. If this been the case, we'll display an error
message.

I observe that we discontinued this support completely, because we can't
handle wc dependent revkinds, even though we support wc independent
revkinds (correct me if my observation is not right).

With this understanding, I wish to propose following changes:

* Re-introduce the support for multiple targets with 'svn log' command
  using wc independent revkinds.

* Display an error message if wc dependent revkinds are passed while
  using multiple targets.

Comments?
