Well, I suppose you could, if you made sure that the post-commit hook
did a separate commit to add the log info, and didn't trigger on
commits that it generated, and dealt with conflicts, and about a
million other things...

But it's not going ot be a trivial thing to implement. And you
absolutely can't do it as part of a commit (modifying the transaction
before it's committed) because that's a great way to get corrupted
working copies due to them being out of sync with the repository.

As for why Subversion doesn't support the $Log$ keyword by default,
see http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#log-in-source for details
