the cvs equivalent of $Log$

as a newer user to subversion the biggest issue has been the inability
to put the comment given at checkin time to the contents of the file
which is being checked in.

svn has the $author, $rev, $date, ... but no $log, $comment or
equivalent. as svn already has the plumbing to do this, as verified by
these other keyword substitutions, why is there not one for the comment?

the users have complained most about this. they now have enter the
comment twice. placing first in the file they have modified and the
second as the comment to the checkin.

I have searched, and searched and yet to have stumbled upon the method
of accomplishing this. I think I have found a few pay for solutions but
we are too small to justify those expenses.

is there really no way to do this?
or is it such a dead horse no one bothers to discuss it any more?
or have my search parameters not been finding the information ?
