OK, did not pick up that you were only interested in that information.
 You are right that SVN will always show the information for directory
plus children. The only changes to a directory that SVN tracks are
prop changes, so in general the history of a folder is uninteresting.

If you wanted the changes to just the directory you would need to use
the --verbose option on log which will print the changed paths. You
would then have to parse out the interesting revisions by finding the
ones where the folder path is included.

That is all you would get for a directory.
