Sorry -- I missed the part about being able to edit the list of changes;
I'm ambivalent about that, since it implies finding structure in the file
produced by the editor session. I don't think it's wrong, I'm just
ambivalent; besides, I've never minded exiting the sesion, aborting the
commit, fixing whatever's wrong and then doing the commit operation again.

However -- that doesn't address the issues brought up wrt implicit
deletions -- because it's quite possible for a user to fail to notice an
unintentional deletion. Esp. if subversion offers non-interactive commit
operations (as cvs does) ... I don't know if that's the plan, but I
wouldn't be surprised if some people wanted that feature.

thanks --
