The feature itself would not be so hard to implement. But it would be
much harder to avoid getting beaten to death by all the users.

To do what you want, we would have to fetch the revision property for
every single revision shown in the log dialog. If you consider a round
trip time of only half a second, that would mean 50 seconds for the
default 100 revisions shown.

And the server administrators would personally hunt me down at home too.
