--limit doesn't work the way you say. If you run ┬źsvn log --limit=50
TARGET» and TARGET has been touched by at least 50 commits, you'll get
50 entries in the output, regardless of whether those 50 revisions were
consecutive or not. In particular, ┬źsvn log -rHEAD:0 -l1┬╗ will _always_
print something.
