Okey, why not. Much more code will be rewriten. But you'll get your
favorite format of log messages.

May be other svn properties must be considered as a sequence of lines also?

As I can undestand at current moment "svn log" always add one newline.
New algorithm is better.

Server must enforce this constraint. Or other subversion client will
break it.

If format of log messages as "a sequence of lines" will be standart in
some hypothetical future then no reason guard it now.

In this view "svn log" gives the exact log message except "slightly
corrupted" (without newline). Why do you want give method to get
"slightly corrupted" log messages?
