Ok, but then log dialog should allow multi-selection?

The slowness part is unfortunate, but IMHO orthogonal to interface
decision -- it will be
slow no matter what.
I think the best interface is to add "Auto" button near "revision" field, which
will (after a progress dialog, if needed) populate it with revision
ranges it selected.

At least in current dialog, From/To refer to both URL and revisions.
Perhaps simply "Last/First" unstead of "From/To"?
