Oh, I see. I didn't know that. I tend to always save changes
reflexively, so it didn't enter my mind as a possibility. I assume you
mean that *any* unsaved changes will prompt an abort message?

In that case, I agree my suggestion is not necessary. Is this
documented anywhere, or is it just considered one of those things that
is too obvious to mention? I just took a look in the `svn commit'
section of the "Subversion Complete Reference" section of the
Subversion Book, and don't see it there or in the introductory
material on `svn commit' in the "Guided Tour". Perhaps it is worth
mentioning somewhere?
