[RFC] Documenting the log message syntax for property changes

Hi All,
    I was making changes to the ctypes-python-bindings branch and I
needed to commit a property change. I immediately looked at the
Hacker's Guide to Subversion and I didn't see any mention of how to
properly create a log message for property changes. Would it make
sense to have a documented standard for this? My personal suggestion
is below:

* PATH (PROP_NAME): MESSAGE

Here is an example for making a property change to svn:ignore on trunk:

.....

* . (svn:ignore): Ignore build.

I actually used a previous commit as an example, which is the same as
the one above but no property name in parenthesis, as my template for
my commit but I wonder if we couldn't do better with a more
descriptive message format like the one mentioned above. Also, if
there was some agreement, documentation would make sense as well.

Take care,
