Not sure what kind of output you are looking. If a file changed multiple
times between the two revisions, what is the comment(s) for the file going
to be? A set of truncated comments would look odd, I think.
Can you show the output you are expecting to have?

You can grep the output of 'svn log -rN:M <branch-url>' and get this done
(possibly a bash script). I do not know of any tool that does this already.
Or you could use the subversion APIs. There is a Java API that is very
mature. I have not used it and so I can't help you on that. I know that
PySVN is a pretty good client side python tool that can help you with this.
