That wouldn't be a problem - you're changing a revision property not a
revision - see
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch05.html#svn-ch-5-sect-1.2 and
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/re23.html though take in to account
the "Note" at the bottom of the latter. As you can edit a revprop on a
URL, you won't even need to check out a local working copy as part of
your hook.

That said, most people seem to take the message from the commit and
add that to the issue tracking system, rather than the other way
around. You may want to consider if that is the right way for you.
