TSVN has defined how the bug ID is added to the log message already.
See here for details:

The problem with that approach is that whatever char you choose, you
can't be really sure that it won't appear in the log message without
referring to an issue/ticket. That's why we've defined that a
bug-ID/ticketnumber has to be added or prepended to the log message in a
well defined format, and that it has to be on its own line. Only that
way you can reduce the risk of false bug-ID's used by the issuetracker
pre/post-commit hook as a real one.

And yes, your suggestion sounds great. But you can't expect a Subversion
client to implement something that big? I mean you're expecting
something not even big text editors can do - and a Subversion client is
no text editor.
