Ideally, we'd be snarfing up stderr and sending that back to the user
(though... that might be a *whole* lotta data, hm...). Not sure what
to suggest here. Hey, worst-case, you could email the user. :-)

     Dear <username>,

     Recently you attempted a commit to the repository located at
     http://my.server.com/repos/svn, but you failed to supply a
     non-empty log message. You shall cease and desist from similar
     errors of omission in the future -- or I'll be forced to dispatch
     my team of expert thugs.
