If you have the svn repository available this might help:

     svn log -l100 --search "1[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]"

Not a substitute for what you are asking for, but might help in the 
meantime.  Subject to both false positives and false negatives.  You can 
tweak the number pattern to more specific ranges (and remove -l100 if 
you need more hits).
