Since ".bat" was mentioned, I presume this is on Windows...

you can redirect stdout to stderr by "1>&2"

my pre-revprop-change.bat looks like this:

set REPOS=%1
set REV=%2
set USER=%3

if "%PROPNAME%"=="svn:log" (
        echo You are not allowed to change svn:log property! 1>&2
        set returnval=1
) else (
        set returnval=0

exit %returnval%
