I undestand why this happens. But your can't undestand one simple thing.
One line message is always one line message. And every human can approve
it. No matter how computer make wrong decision.

As I already said, if a bug have a workaround it don't begin looked like
a customizable feature.

Well, let me explain again. "svn log" don't expect EOL at the end. "svn
commit --message", "svn commit --file" and "svn commit" (with editor)
don't add EOL if it not exist. Almost code wroted as if log message have
not trailing EOL.

There is chose. Rewrite almost code to support log message with trailing
EOL, as Greg like. Or fix bug. Or do nothing? What your prefer?

IMHO, will be convenient remove all white spaces at the end, not only
EOL. They arised by mistype usually. Don't have any useful information.
And invisible for human to fix it manualy.

Do you have argument to negate this?
