Making the "log" link point to the log of the currently selected commit
is easy but I do not know whether that is what we want to do. It is a
convenient way to navigate back to the "full" log and I think this is
what most users would expect. Note that you can always manually append
"?id=$tag" to the log URI which is what I sometimes do when posting
links to the log of a release somewhere.

Anyway, if you still want the "make clicking on the log 'tab' do the
right thing" behavior, try this (untested):
