Yes, I'm not opposing it, I'm just trying to get a better general
picture.  Some of the problems we may encounter is that some backends
don't support the `limit' argument.  Hopefully all those backends can
easily turn a "print-log FILE REV LIMIT=1" request into "print-log FILE
REV1 REV2" instead, tho.  Not sure what to do for other values of LIMIT,
but maybe that's doable as well.

That's my impression a well,
