Log messages between tags

Hi, I've just started looking at subversion as a replacement for CVS
on our company. One thing I haven't been able to do, or find anything
about in the documentation is the following.

We use branches and tags a lot for our software. A module for each
major version, a branch for each minor version, and tags for every
(bugfix) release in that branch. As a part of the release procedure,
we extract all changes between two releases from the CVS logs,
i.e. all logs between two tags.

This is what I have been unable to do with subversion. It works
perfectly well to get diff between two tags, with the "svn diff
--old=... --new=..." command. But I would like to be able to get all
log messages for all those changes too.

In CVS, I can do "cvs log -rREL_1_0_0:REL_1_0_1" for example. In
subversion, all I can do is between two revisions, but how do I know
what revisions that are between two tags. Also note that there may be
several commits to other branches in the meantime, and these logs must
not be included. Since subversion uses global revisions, I can't just
use from:to revision interval, can I?

Greetings,

Tomas
