I know of two commercial implementations (probably not what you're after):

1. Atlassian provides SVN access to open source software projects via hosted FishEye instances.
 Here's their ASF instance:

Mahout has apparently set this up already, and I assume Lucene-java could do the same:

You can query comments and just about anything else -- see the "Query" tab.

2. IntelliJ IDEA's "Repository" tab in the "Changes" pane provides a VC system browser (Subversion
among I don't know how many others) with a commit message search box -- from a revision hit
from a commit message search, you can see a tree view of modified files, and then double click
on each of them to see side-by-side colored differences.  Extremely slick.

Also, in the open source realm:

3. ViewVC (formerly ViewCVS) has a facility to query revision history, including commit messages.
 Apache's instance, which serves Lucene's repository, doesn't expose this functionality, though....
