I've already expressed my lack of interest in the feature.
I think the less we can have Subversion tied to quirky environment variables
and such, the better. There are workarounds for this behavior (including
writing a generic wrapper around 'svn' itself which can hijack the -m and -F
parameters and tweak their arguments in accordance with the prefix and
suffix stuffs). And, like Ben, I've never heard *anyone* else ask for such
Krzysiek, you are more than welcome to incorporate this behavior into your
own personal build of Subversion and share that build with your team members
if it suits you. I can't recall now if you showed up here with a patch, but
I don't think coding this feature would take you much time. Probably just
some tweaks to subversion/svn/util.c:svn_cl__get_log_message().
