That does make sense. Actually, it's the way people make changes even
without a version control system. Try typing C-x 4 a inside a function
in some file. Or, if you have never taken a peek inside 'svn-dev.el',
go check out the function 'svn-log-message' - it does pretty much the
same thing.

This could ofcourse be pulled together in the svn.el to provide the
functionality properly - but the idea is already here.
