Creating commits with empty changesets

Is there any way to do a commit with and empty changeset, but non-empty commit

I made a typo in a commit message. Unfortunately the typo isn't just
cosmetic, since it is right in a revision number referencing another commit.
Even more unfortunately, changing the commit message after having commited
isn't really an option (it's not important enough to change history).

My next best idea was to make another commit right after the faulty one, with
an empty changeset and a commit message explaining the previous error. But
svn silently ignores my attempts to this end.

I'm using the commandline client from Debian:
svn, version 1.6.12 (r955767)
