I agree. I reguarly hop over to TortoiseSVN to do this. Since we use the
log messages for issue ID's, I will often fix messages to add or changed
the ID's.

Like, TortoiseSVN, he does initialize the dialog with the current text so
that you just have to edit it. The Undo option is a good idea and we
already have a drop-down with previous commit messages to choose from. So
maybe we could just add the old message to that cache (in case someone
else did the original commit or it came from another client). That way,
to Undo, you would just have to take the option again (even after closing
Eclipse) and it would be in your list of previous messages.
