You can also configure your editor to remove the "-- This line and..."
line and any whitespace before it automatically. If your editor cannot
do this, you can write a simple wrapper that would do it after executing
the editor, and modify your config file (or set up the SVN_EDITOR
environment variable) to execute the wrapper. (I already do something
like that for Mutt.)

You can have a hook that does sanity checks, but AFAIK, it cannot
modify the log message.
