In the simple case of "svn commit" with no provided log message, I
assume Karl envisioned using the same RA session to fetch the template
and to perform the commit.

In the case of "svn commit --template-only" followed by "svn commit -F
file", there would obviously be two RA sessions.

I commit twenty files in ten widely separated directories. Which
directory's template gets used?

This is one of the questions Karl initially started out trying to
answer, and he found that the answer wasn't obvious, which led him to
the idea of punting to a server hook. Yet you and four other of this
morning's contributors to the conversation seem to have simply glossed
over the question, instead considering issues like how the user might
easily set the same template for many directories. Perhaps you all have
some simple, adequate idea in mind ("the template for the anchor of the
commit", perhaps), but I really can't tell.
