I'm not entierly against this idea. I guess the main problem i have with
it is that is so damn nice, both to use and to
read. Without it i'm afraid we'll just commit with a one line message
saying "implemented feature foo". Whereas with its
not that much work to describe each change on a per-file basis (or bunch
of files).

Maybe i'm just to stuck with what i'm used to though. How do people
using this model create their commit messages? Whats the general commit
