I think this is a good idea. It would also deal with my issue. If
someone wanted the option to abort their commit, they could just make
sure to have a log message which was (at most) whitespace. It would
also be consistent with the current behaviour, as Nicholas says.

Of course, this might not be trivial to implement.
