Right, you can easily change the log message in the post-commit
script using "svnadmin setlog".

In the pre-commit script you don't have a revision yet; you have a
transaction, and there is no command-line program that lets you
change the log message of a transaction. However I believe you can do
it if you write a program using one of the Subversion language
bindings (Python, Perl, etc.)
