Errr... anyone who needs to see the log to work on the file is probably
the kind of person who would already have a workspace, and since the
workspace has a cached copy of the log history...

Or for customer types, include a change log file. An organized, edited,
accurate change log which only includes useful information is a heck of
a lot better than rummaging around in log entries created by developers
(some of whom somehow managed to write in Sanskrit using ASCII.)

As for switching tools, it's not that difficult to copy the $URL$ from
the log file and paste it to 'svn log ...' Plus on Windows, alt-tab is
your Friend. Software that lets you have multiple desktops should also
have hotkeys.

I'm all for being lazy, but I've found that the more effort you put into
being lazy, the lazier you can be, hence why it's a good idea to learn
to type, to learn hot-keys for switching between windows/apps and to do
fast cut'n'paste. (Instead of slogging around using the mouse.)
