RFE: Add support for --author option in svn log

Somehow (too much coffee? again?! :-), I didn't see the yellow/red
banner on the top page of the issue tracker, I apologize for filing
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2393 ...

So, anyway here is a small RFE, let me see if somebody will be interested.

Today I run into this, while trying to see who changed what in a binary
file in our repo. svn blame does not work on binary files (no sense
anyway) and svn log does not accept (say) --author as an argument. I
finished grepping a lot, but it is ugly and has to be done manually.

So, I suggest as RFE to add support for --author option to svn log (at

svn log --author kalin path/to/repo

should give only log entries for commits by 'kalin' user.

Further enhancing --author "kalin or nancy and not steve" might be
interesting, but an overkill.
