I'm assuming you mean svn log -v.

I've wanted some sort of --exclude option to log so that I can ignore
changes that only touch things in the exclude list (would make my job
of writing CHANGES for the branches easier). But that doesn't seem to
be what you're proposing here.

You just want the verbose listing of modifications to be trimmed to
only the path you asked for. We allow the output of the diff when
--diff is used to be limited with --depth, so I suppose that --depth
could be allowed without --diff and could limit the -v output as well.

Anyone else have some thoughts on this?
