This is not exactly what you asked, but the changeset feature coming in
TortoiseSVN 1.5.0 might help you:

This allows to group files together to a changelist. But there is no
possiblity to add a comment to a changelist.

If adding a comment to a changelist is going to be supported by TortoiseSVN
it will need to be supported by the subversion library first. Please ask on
the subversion list.
