Sounds good

Yes

Yes

I definitely think the UI of this view could be better. These are all
good ideas. I would like to see us add some ability to limit the number
of messages so as to improve performance. The new log --limit feature
could do this. Unfortunately, it works real bad against a 1.1 server,
which is what tigris.org is running, so it should be optional to use it.

We should also expose the --stop-on-copy option.

Finally, what TortoiseSVN used to do, before the new --limit option, was
figure out that the last changed revision for the selected item was N and
then run the command:

svn log -r N-100:N url://

This gives all of the log messages in the last 100 revision. The nice
thing is that it runs fast on all servers. The bad thing is that you
might only get 1 revision in that range.
