It's not just commits, but also merge-news, update, diff, ... everything.
The VC-dired part tries to provide multiple-file operations but in my
experience it just doesn't work acceptably. There needs to be serious
re-design here and it's non trivial if we want it to work for Subversion,
CVS, Arch, ... until now people have just provided other interfaces instead
(psvn.el, pcl-cvs, xtla, ...). That makes the job even more difficult since
we now have to compete against custom-taylored code.

They don't seem to be applicable.
