But it is good!
The Subversion CL client fetches logs from WC instead of HEAD, exactly
for the reason you mentioned. But as you can see if you search their
mailing list (and the FAQ), people are very confused about that!
Because if someone shows the log of a file/folder, they won't see if
someone else has committed to that item. It doesn't show a log for it.

If you want to see the log of a removed item, use the repository
browser, go back to the revision the file still existed, and then show
the log from there.
