Currently I have the practical problem that the script listens to the 
svnpubsub service to get the commit details and the functionality there 
"optimizes linefeeds" away, so that the full description would be 
somehow mangled. Once this is solved (or replaced by asking svn 
directly) we can do this.

A good change description would be good regardless of the svnbot.

That's a good idea. Otherwise the bugzilla comment would look too 
automatic and noisy.

Other than that I changed the machine the test svnbot is running on not 
to fall into sleep when there was no key/mouse/net interaction for a 
while. Due to that problem some commits last night didn't result in 
automatic bugzilla updates. Sorry about that.
