Log caching is a client-side convenience which only works in TSVN.
Getting special tsvn: props and server hooks to make this work will be
highly unpopular on public servers which are accessed using many
different clients.

That's why I also suggest a context menu entry to update a single log
message in the cache from the server. Easy (for Stefan + Stefan^2 :)
to do and no server side impact.

It might also be beneficial to have per-repository cache clearing
rather than one button to clear all log caches at once. But the same
could be said of clearing authentication, commit log messages, etc.
