Actually, the messages may not be machine parseable, but the log
output has been designed to be machine parseable. If you look at the
line below the separator line (the one with the =-signs), you see at
the end the number of lines. It's not the number of lines in the
change, but the number of lines in the log item to follow :-) This
means you know exactly how many lines to read until the next
Also, if you request the changed files to be listed, the order is
defined to be the changed paths first and than the log message. The
format of the changed paths is also fixed in order to be machine
parseable. (It's, if I'm not mistaken, the same format as used by svn
The user name of the one who committed the change can be read from the
line below the separator, as can the date of the commit.

There are tools to generate statistics from your svn repository, they
might include functionality which help analyse scenario. Have a look
at http://subversion.tigris.org/links.html .
