The svn_client_log() function takes a revision range to fetch log
messages. The discussion was about making an svn_client_log2() function
which takes a revision and a number of log messages as parameter so that
you can actually do
svn log -rHEAD:n100
and you'll get exactly 100 log messages, no matter how many revisions
you've got to go back to get 100 log messages.

But such a function is still missing and won't happen before version 2.0
(most likely) because it requires a change in the server protocol.
