Modifying the revision properties should do no harm (and svn:log is a
revision property)... But I'm not sure how to set a revision property
of a transaction... Maybe it doesn't have any yet, because it is not
a revision yet? Looking at the help of "svn propset" and "svnadmin
setlog" I only see the -r option to specify a revision number, and no
-t option to specify at transaction ID.

I know you can set the log of the revision, after it's been
committed, in the post-commit hook, using "svnadmin setlog -r $REPO
$REV $FILE" (where $FILE is a file containing the new log message).
At least that's what the help says.
