Fair enough; as I said, straight from by brain to your eyes... ;-)

And I actually forgot my third possible scheme:

3) Do No Harm - if any single commit would require negotiating which
log-template to use, fail the commit. If a site has established such a
web of conflicting templates, then there must be a reason for it, so the
client code should respect that. The user can then commit in as many
seperate chunks as required (the client code could even be nice and
print out a table of which log-template applied to which files). And
always, the user could use --no-log-template to get around this stricture.
