Due to the fact that the '/' char is also used as a path/url separator,
I won't implement this to format the text as italic. I tried it already
with different algorithms, and I found every time an edge case where the
formatting got messed up due to paths/urls mentioned in the log message.

Since there are many Subversion clients out there (even TSVN not built
from trunk) which don't have this feature, users can't see if their log
messages get messed up when shown with the new TSVN. So we have to make
sure that we avoid as many obstacles as possible with this.
