[PATCH] Clarify help message for svn commit --file

From: Michael W Thelen <thelenm_at_cs.utah.edu>

Here's a small patch to make the 'svn commit --file' help message a
little clearer. The phrase "read data from file" is pretty vague and I
have gotten confused by it. "read commit message from file" makes it
clear exactly what the file is supposed to contain (and the phrase is
parallel with the help message for svn commit --message).

Clarify 'svn commit' help message for --file option.

* subversion/clients/cmdline/main.c
  (svn_c1__options): change message from "read data from file" to "read
  commit message from file".
