++1! Anything else is only a partial solution. If we put the commit
messages anyplace other than /tmp (or the equivalent), then EVERY svn user
has to remember to delete those files. Which, conveniently, we have just
removed from a directory that they are likely to look at. :-)

If we just use /tmp, then the user can ignore it, because the system's
regular sweep of /tmp will remove those files. (Assuming a well
maintained system).
