Subversion log messages are mutable, they can be changed by setting
the svn:log revision property. So the expansion of $log:$ in any
given file could be out of date. Update may well need to retrieve the
appropriate log message for each occurrence of the $log:$ keyword,
even if the file that contained it was not otherwise updated. Yuck!
It's not something I'd want to use.
