I think TSVN already does something like this?

I think it strips all preceding and terminating newlines in log messages.

(Seemed odd to me at first since I would personally have liked to
preserve a terminating newline. Anyway, got used to it pretty quick,
nice to see consistency enforced. And it probably saves a byte of
storage per log message :-).)

If I'm right, and TSVN strips the last newline also, perhaps it's
worth doing the same (= NOT enforcing a trailing newline, but
enforcing removing it) in the client libraries, just to keep log
messages in "TSVN repositories" consistent when/if this new feature is
introduced..
