This is not realy true, because for direct editing of
revision-properties, the "pre-revprop-change"-hook must be present.
(Reason: revision-properties are not versioned, so the old property is
lost forever if changed).

If you have direct access to the Subversionserver, you can use the
svnadmin command with the setlog option: "svnadmin setlog -r <Rev. Nr>
--bypass-hooks <File with log-message>"
dont forget the --bypass-hook option, because otherwise you have the
same problem with the above solution ;)
