The standard format lists all files changed. The theory here is that
somebody might want to search the log messages -- for either file names,
or maybe for certain functions.

It is also helpful that when you pull up a log message for <FOO> that you
see all effects during that patch.

I'd request that the file list remains in the log message.

All that said, there is an argument that 'svn log -v' will give you the
list of files, so in certain cases we shouldn't bother. But I believe that
is a specific discussion to have, and then an update of HACKING.
