It's a good suggestion. But I don't like the idea of adding the rev
number to the log message if only one is shown. It makes sense when
multiple revs are selected. But not for just one: in that case it would
confuse users so they think that the rev is part of the log message.

Do you have a suggestion on how to overcome this?
