How to undo a commit?

By mistake, I ran the following command while in the wrong directory:
svn commit -m 'a lengthy description string'

This was a big mistake: The directory in question was not even part of the
project that I thought I was working with! Hence, the lengthy message that
I passed as the argument to the -m option is wholly inappropriate, and in
fact misleading. (In addition, a couple of files got committed prematurely
to the repository, but this is the lesser problem.)

Is there a straightforward way to undo this mistake, and delete the
incorrect message?

I assume the answer is no, since Subversion is designed to "keep
everything". In this case, what's the best approximation to a full delete
of this incorrect message?

TIA!
