Should TortoiseSVN request the whole log (Consider that the subversion
library is around revision 1,500,000. And yes, there are seven digits
in that number.) every time someone tries to update-to-date?
Or should it only request some subset of the log? What subset? What is
the average-case and worst-case number of requests required to find
the correct revision?

And then TortoiseSVN should grace every server blessed to be mentioned
in an svn:external with the same request or set of requests?

Somehow I'm thinking you're going to have a hard time selling the
server admins on this idea, even if you convince everyone else.
