Limit svnlook history output?

From: Mike Schilli <m_at_perlmeister.com>

In a post_commit hook, 'svnlook history' can be used to dig up details
on the previous checkin of the affected file(s).


     svnlook history -r txn repo path

returns a list of N historical entries of which the 2nd one is the repo
on the previous repo version of the same file.


a) Is this the best way of obtaining the first repo revision containing
the previous version of the file?

b) Is there a way to limit the output to a small number of entries? Some
files have histories of several thousand entries, most of which aren't
needed in this case.

Any help appreciated!
