I actually prefer it quite a bit to using --limit. (I use the
equivalent of --limit 100 when I'm using TortoiseSVN, because that's
what it does.) It means I don't need to know in advance how many revs
to ask for, I can just scan through the list until I'm satisfied. I
find TortoiseSVN quite irritating in forcing me to click on the "next
100" button whenever I want more.
