For me '\n' would be completely fine. You are right that you can put ';' 
into filenames or directory names but we can agree that is extremly rare 
and dangerous.
I thought it about yesterday evening and in base of Bill ideas, it could 
be the best if ALL changelog information can be available by an {xml} 
key (or a -xml output command parameter) for log (with a predefined 
xsl/dtd for that).
My base problem is that rev/node/branch/tag/file/comment information is 
available in but you have to  play a lot around valid 
key/template combination or even look into python source which I would 
like to really avoid.
I don't know whether anybody is interested in such solutions...
