Isn't the best option to seperate automatic commit from automatic update?
I don't think there's a real need to forcefully disable automatic update
anywhere. And that allows it to easily disable/enable automatic commit
where needed.
Moreover I'm likely to use automatic update on at least 1 of my working
copies, but will most certainly not enable automatic commit anywhere (while
I do see that it can be usefull for many.)
Automatic commit does require automatic update, so another option would be
to have a menu option 'automatic mode' that opens a window where you can
set a checkbox for automatic update and if automatic update is enabled an
automatic commit is allowed than an additional checkbox could be made
sensitive.
