Unfortunately neither are useful for the most common case I want to use
(which I suspect is what Jim wants too).

I want to find all the log entries between releases, which to me means
after the first tag and up until and including the second one.  In other
words I need:

        Between rev1 and rev2, excluding rev1 and including rev2.

Seeing that last log entry is just as important as not seeing the first

Once upon a time I had written a half-correct awk script that would
strip out irrelevant 'rev1' entries from '-r rev1:rev2' reports, but it
never worked quite correctly and to properly fix it would have required
processing the full output of "cvs log" and figuring out which revisions
to put in the report all on my own.  Since '::' misses even more
critical information than ':' includes extraneous information, it's even
less useful to me!  :-)
