That sounds much more logical.
The goal is to produce a change log for a "release". The changes to be
described are only those those after TAG1, up to, and including, any for
TAG2, iff TAG2 is on a different revision from(after) TAG1. I.e. do not
print the log entry for TAG2 if it's on the same revision as TAG1.
The analogy is with the "cvs diff/patch/rdiff" commands where deltas are
only displayed if there is a difference to be displayed.
