If I understand correctly, can't you just do this?

svn diff /path/to/repos/tags/1.0.1/foo.c /path/to/repos/tags/1.0.2/foo.c

Or do you want to look at the actual log messages between 1.0.1 and
1.0.2? In that case, you may have to find out the revision in which the
1.0.1 tag was created, but you don't need to know when 1.0.2 was
created. Do something like this:

svn log --stop-on-copy /path/to/repos/tags/1.0.1/foo.c
    (to find out the revision when 1.0.1 was created)
svn log -rN:HEAD /path/to/repos/tags/1.0.2/foo.c

where N is the revision number you found out in the first step. That
may not be much help, but at least it's only one revision number lookup
instead of two.
