I also think that's not much of an inconvenience, compared to the
inconvenience of not being able to do this at all. I think that this
choice is independent of the svn_client API change, though: if "svn
propedit" wanted to provide one buffer with two parts or something,
then it can just use a custom log_msg_func2 into the client ctx when
calling svn_client_propset3.

(I'll write this the straightforward way, with two editor invocations.
 Whether or not changing from "two editor invocations" to "one editor
invocation" is an incompatible API change is unclear to me, since it's
most likely to occur in interactive use, but in any case the UI could
be tweaked at any time before 1.5.)
