Modifying log message in pre-commit hook

I would like to expand an user entered BUGID in the log message in the
pre-commit hook (I.E. add missing zeros at the beginning of the
number). I have the new value and the old log message, I just
do not know how to apply the changes to the transaction in the hook.

svnadmin setlog does not take a transaction argument. Should it?

svn propset/propedit do not take transaction arguments. (I'm ok with this
since I would rather use the specific svnadmin setlog.)

The pre-commit.tmpl file seems to indicate changing revision properties
such as svn:log is ok, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do it
without using either the perl or python API directly.

It is possible to rewrite the log message in the post-commit hook, but
doing it there would significantly complicate other hooks for non-SVN
related reasons.
