Hm, actually it is more complex than that.
All message sources are now prioritized as following:

1) tsvn:logtemplate
2) /logmsg
3) /logmsgfile
4) %MESSAGEFILE% from start-commit hook

Each source, if present, silently overrides previous one.
In some cases, especially with (4), it even makes sense ;-)
So perhaps this should be documented and left as-is?
