Agreed. I remember harping on Karl for similarly editing log messages
"behind the scenes". His "justification" for not using --revprop was that
the commit message didn't send a diff.

But what it *does* send is more than the CGI.

Oh, note that the CGI can do its magic even while revprop changes are
disabled (no hook in place). But for the SVN repos, we *have* that hook,
so I think the CGI ought to go.
