Yes, you could do it in the post-commit hook...

As far as I know, the cmdline programs (well, svnadmin) shipped with svn
don't give you a way to edit txn properties. But you could "pretty
easily" write a program to do it using one of the bindings sets (say,
the Python bindings). I'm actually kind of in favor of 'svnadmin
setlog' taking a -t txn argument, but that's certainly not going to
happen for the 1.5 release.
