No, it's not possible.

What you want is the value of the 'svn:log' property attached to each
revision. To get those, you'd need to issue an http PROPFIND request
(rather than a GET request) on specific opaque URLs produced by the
mod_dav_svn server, which themselves are derivable through PROPFIND
requests.

You have to speak WebDAV/DeltaV, which means doing much more than
just http GET. Not a simple task.
