It was just as simple as using "cat" - I ran "svn diff >
something.patch", loaded the patch file into my text editor, typed the
"[[[" and "]]]", and pasted in the log message. Or something similar.
Actually, instead of "svn diff" I ran my "svnlogmsg" script, but you get
the idea.

It's absolutely OK! It can put some contributors off quite badly if we
fuss too much about the "process", so I'm glad you don't mind if we did
in this case.
