commit templates

I'm looking for a clean way to use the command line client and have
the ability to specify a commit template when adding a comment on

BUG_ID: xxxxx
BUG_DESC: xxxxx

or somesuch, prefilled in my editor of choice. I know about the
SVN_EDITOR workaround (setting SVN_EDITOR in such a way that a
template is made), but that is a horrid horrid hack and doesn't work
across the board on different subversion revlevels.

So - is there a better fix for this? I'd much rather upgrade my svn
clients to support this than be forced to have multiple workarounds
for what is - after all not that great a hack. Ideally, I'd like to be
able to set a centralized policy on the server side to force a certain
convention, but I can see how that might not be well supported by
svn's design. Perhaps a config file - on checkout - could force this.

Anyways, any info on this let me know..
