The only way to do this would be to use a WebDAV client with
Autoversioning (see http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/apc.html).
However, you would then lose the ability to specify log messages, unless
you edited them after the fact by modifying the svn:log revprop, because
a WebDAV client will simply insert a generic log message.

What you're asking for wouldn't be possible from other clients, because
otherwise they wouldn't know where to store the .svn housekeeping info.
