Some points about this change.

1) Unsetting $EDITOR isn't really all that feasible, since a lot of other
programs use it. Why not have an option in the config file for it?

2) I thought we weren't going to have svn try to force log messages, since its
not feasible anyways.

3) What BenC said about people expecting an editor to pop up even without
$EDITOR set.

4) Will this fix other operations that commit, svn cp, svn mkdir, etc?
