Doesn't seem to work as described.  Take the example of gcc/invoke.texi.  
"svn log -v ." in the gcc directory produces 25 MB of output (which from 
strace appears to be being transferred across the network uncompressed; 
compare simple "cvs -z9 log invoke.texi" which produces output of 50kB 
compressed so probably 50kb network bandwidth used).  This shows 
gcc/invoke.texi being deleted (ignoring subsequent resurrections) in 
r24845; the previous change to it being in r24842.  But "svn log -v 
invoke.texi@24845" says "Skipped 'invoke.texi@24845'", similarly "svn log 
-v invoke.texi@24842", "svn log -v -r 24842 invoke.texi", "svn log -v -r 
1:24842 invoke.texi", "svn log -v 
svn://".  Eventually 
trial and error shows "svn log -v -r 24844:1 
svn://" works.  But it 
seems rather cumbersome to need to waste 25MB of bandwidth getting logs 
for the whole directory to get the logs for an individual file (and in 
particular when it was deleted if you want another svn comment to extract 
just the logs for that file).
