Hmm.  My thought is that the prefix "svn commit " is redundant and should be 
dropped.  A subject starting with "r126493 - /apr/site/trunk/docs/download.html 
..." should be sufficiently obvious.  That change wouldn't in itself help you 
to distinguish between one project and another, but it would remove the "svn" 
prefix that partly confuses you, and you could filter them based on the sender 
and/or look at the subject line after the revision number.
