I haven't run the code, but conceptually this is a really nice usability
improvement. Setting the svn:log revprop is such a common operation
that having a custom UI which expedites the operation is a big plus.

You might want to consider having it grab the previous log first, and
adding support for Undo by saving the old log message in memory or
caching it on disk (perhaps just until Eclipse is restarted).
