Subversion reads the file it supplies to you.

Yes, you are. But you shouldn't save it under a different name. If you
do that, how is svn supposed to know where you saved it?

Yes, that's the secondary usage. Most editors only know how to edit
files, so svn needs to pass a file into your editor in order to know
what you typed as a commit message.

HTH,
