In theory, if you can link the pre-commit transaction to the post commit
revision number, you can set the values in the post-commit hook. Ex:
if the check-in is transaction 1234, which becomes revision 199, you
could add your custom values to the svn:log attribute for revision 199
in the post-commit hook.

However, I don't think that's possible out of the box. One idea, which
may or may not be sane or practical, is to use 'svnlook changed
--transaction' and 'svnlook cat --transaction' in the pre-commit hook to
generate an md5 hash. Create a temp file using the md5 hash as the name
and put the custom values in the file. During the post-commit hook, use
'svnlook changed --revision' and 'svnlook cat --revision' to generate
the md5. Look to see if a file with that md5 hash for a name already
exists. If so, then use 'svnadmin setlog' to add the custom values to
the log message. However, keyword expansion might mangle the
post-commit md5 value.

Again, it's just an idea, and I make no claims to practicality.
