Okay, now I understand your problem.

The only way I can think of to *correctly* solve this problem is to add a
field to svn_client_ctx_t that contains the 'non-interactive' flag, and then
have svn_cl__get_log_message (in util.c) check this flag before asking for a

We *could* solve the problem more locally by adding placing the flag in the
log_msg_baton function, but the problem with that is, we have to change
something else if something *elsewhere* decides to start prompting.

An alternative would be to not prompt the user under any circumstances, and
if they want to commit a blank log message, they have to use -m '' (or
perhaps --force-log).
