When you give a URL or working copy path to the svn log command, then
you will only get logs for that path and any of its subdirectories.
So if you run svn log -rX:Y http://repos/branch/foo, you will only get
log messages for /branch/foo between revisions X and Y. You won't see
logs for any other part of the repository. (Except that you will see
pre-copy log messages for items that have been copied into /branch/foo
between revisions X and Y, but that's sort of a technicality.)
