It may be a little unclear but there are two types of properties in
Subversion. One type is regular versioned properties, which Subversion
always keeps history for just like file contents, and which you will
never lose from the repository with a Subversion client (svn command
line, TortoiseSVN, etc.)

The other type is a "revision property" (revprop). There can be only one
of each revprop associated with any given revision. The commit message
is one such revprop, namely "svn:log". You can change it after the fact,
but if you do, its previous value will be gone forever.
