Well, I have a rather different view. I'm shocked and dismayed to find
out that "svn lock filename" brings up an editor by default. I think
most users will view lock comments as an annoyance and will prefer not
to use them. "svn lock filename" should just lock the file with no
comment, and we should have an explicit flag to bring up an editor to
record the comment with. Once we switch to that model, it doesn't
matter as much what comes up in the editor window.
