What about pre-revprop-change?

This is suuuuuuuuuuuuch a non-issue. I've lost more time reading and
deleting that thread, the commit mails, and now this follow-up thread
than I've ever spent in annoyance that, *gasp*, there's extra whitespace
in my 'svn log' output! (The horror!)

Crap. And I didn't feel good about sending this reply without at least
checking out the log-police.py script for myself, and now I've gone and
blown *another* 10 minutes making fixes and cleanups to that thing
(r187398).

-0 on installation at svn.collab.net.
-1 on this topic eating up any more of any committer's valuable time.
