Changing the commit message after the fact

I need to change some commit-messages on commits that have already been
done. I did some Googling and it looks like this will work:

(from the server)

  svnadmin setlog -r <revision_number> --bypass-hook <file_with_message>

My questions:

1) There was a note that the above technique would blow away the "history".
That worried me a little. What "history" does this kill?

2) Is there really no good way to do this from a client?
