On a related note:

For Subversion's repository, how hard would it be to write a
pre-commit script that takes the log msg from the txn, removes all
leading and trailing blank lines and guarantees that the log message
ends with a single newline, and writes it back to the txn before the
commit? About fifteen minutes? Thirty? :-)

Not that I've started this, but if someone did, would we be fine with
it?
