From my point of view - no.
It still prohibits simple "svn pe svn:author" - I suggested *removing* a final
newline, at least for a defined set of properties; taking a newline away in
all properties will lead to messages like "missing newline at end of line",
"line not terminated", etc. in some programs.

And if I remember to add the "--force" - "svn log" will be garbled.
So there's no correct way to edit svn:author with a texteditor, which puts a
newline at the end of lines.

I'd prefer to have the (last) newline stripped off per default, and by using
--force the message will be taken as-is.
