It's really hard to define such a feature... how would you define the
UI?

The problem is that you're making a whole lot of assumptions here about
the relationship between two URLs -- that they share history in a
really specific way.

Honestly, what I'd really like to see is a new feature like

       svn diff URL1 URL2 --short

Where --short (--quiet? whatever it's called) causes the diff command
to print nothing but the single-letter status codes that one normally
sees from 'update' or 'merge'. Then at least you'd be able to see the
list of files that changed between two branches. Not quite the same
thing as seeing the logs, but a lot of people have asked for this.
