If I understand correctly, the Subversion backend can already handle a
revision with no changes (though I don't know if it can handle file-changes
with empty deltas, which I think you'd need to associate the revision
with the files), though I don't think you are supposed to be able to produce
such a revision with the current libraries/client...

But what's the use case for such a feature anyway? The only time I've ever
seen it used is to be able to add a note to say something like 'last checkin
was for bug xxx', and that can be more easily done in Subversion by editing
the svn:log revision property.
