Have a look at http://commitmessage.tigris.org
That's a project dealing only with commit message/mailer scripts. And it
works well on windows too.

Maybe you can ask them to implement this kind of feature.

TSVN reads the properties from the folder you selected when you started
the commit (or the log, repobrowser, ...). If there are no properties
there, it walks upwards and tries those folders until it reaches the
root of the working copy.

The script from http://commitmessage.tigris.org can be configured to
only include the common root of all changed paths in the subject line of
the mail (to reduce the subject line length). So I would suggest to use
just that root and look there for those props.
I know that's not perfect, but the project properties aren't either.
It's just a workaround because Subversion doesn't have a per-project
configs (at least not ones that are stored in the repo itself).
