SVN "Show history" limit for commits

Hi,

when retrieving the SVN history of a certain file this operation may take a huge amount of time due to some commits in that file's history span some thousands of files.
The problem occurs the way that when retrieving the SVN history of a file with such huge commits in its history, it takes approx. 2mins until the history gets displayed, while retrieving the history of a file with only small commits in its history, it takes a second.

Looking at tools like the webbased viewvc, this tool has a limit of 100 files per commit that get inspected when retrieving the history of a file. So getting the SVN history of a file with huge commits in its history is the same as fast as getting the SVN history of a file with only small commits.

My question: is the SVN plugin configurable in that way, so I can specify/activate such a limit anywhere?
