We have to balance between users who want new functions which can do
something a little bit faster than with the already existing ones, and
those users who need to find a command in the many many entries in the
submenu. I'm one of them btw.
I find it already hard enough to find the command I need in the bit
submenu TSVN shows.

Can't you just write a small script which calls TortoiseProc.exe with
the /command:log param? Then you can create a link to that script on
your desktop. The script can ask you for the URL/path to show the log
for (or you can pass this with the link directly), then it will ask you
for a revision. Then you call
TortoiseProc.exe /command:log /path:"path/to/wc/root/or/url" /rev:1234
