At present it is possible to set SVN_EDITOR to run a command that
automatically generates log messages thus making 'svn commit'
non-interactive. Your suggestion would mean it is no longer possible
to do this. Yes, there are other way to achieve a non-interactive
commit, but I like the current system.

(I do set my SVN_EDITOR like this, although I don't use its log
messages for the commits I make to the Subversion repository.)
