I use Vim, and I use this little script to prepare an approximate log message template ready for me to fill in the descriptions:

~> cat ~/bin/svnlogmsg
# Write a log message template, listing the files that would be committed.
FILES=`svn st "$@" | grep "^[^?]" | sed 's/^M......//' | sort`
for FILE in $FILES; do
  echo "* $FILE"
  svn diff --diff-cmd diff -x -up $FILE | sed -e "s/^@@ [^@]* @@ \(.*\)\> *(.*$/ (\1): /" -e "t" -e "d" | uniq
svn diff -x -up "$@"

I use it like this:
~> svnlogmsg [Files/Directories to be committed] > logmsg.txt
~> vim logmsg.txt

and it produces the formatted list of file names and function names (to the extent that "diff -p" can guess them), followed by a diff for me to look at, which I delete afterwards.
