Something close to what you want it possible. Printing the log
statements for individual files and directories is likely to be nigh
unto unintelligible. However, `svn list --verbose URL` will print the
last revision, last modifier, modify date, and path for every node at
the specified URL. This is certainly much easier than scripting a
solution and dealing with the network latency and extra parsing.

That said, it might be nice to have finer control over what is
printed, but the predictable structure of --verbose is easy enough to
handle, and there are many more important fish to fry.

If you really want the log messages, I'd recommend getting the verbose
list, creating a non-repeating set of revision numbers, then running
`svn log --revision REV` for each revision. Or use something like
WebSVN or ViewVC to browse to the revisions of interest. :-)
