If it were available, branch logs would be easier to read:

        % svn log -v -r31592
        r31592 | stsp | 2008-06-04 22:54:36 +0300 (Wed, 04 Jun 2008) | 8 lines
        Changed paths:
           M /branches/1.5.x
           M /branches/1.5.x/CHANGES
           M /branches/1.5.x/COMMITTERS
           M /branches/1.5.x/INSTALL
           M /branches/1.5.x/STATUS
           M /branches/1.5.x/subversion/bindings/swig

        On the 1.5.x branch, merge r29432 from trunk.

        * INSTALL: Mention support for Neon 0.28.
        * STATUS: Remove entry for r29432.

I don't have an opinion either way, though, and this problem isn't unique
to 'svn log'.
