Git instantly displays the first page with the most recent
(and most interesting) commits:

 time git log -5
commit 606f8f94cc6288532d7fee9349ac4da98a9ac34b
Author: Juanma Barranquero <address@hidden>
Date:   Thu Oct 23 13:46:17 2008 +0000



real    0m0.346s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m0.020s

(Measured with "cold" cache on a Laptop 
 with Intel Core2duo U7500  @ 1.06GHz)

So in case of Git the first page is shown in practical use-cases in
less than 1s.
I have no idea whether Bzr is able to show the first commits while
computing the others in background.
