Then why does TSVN put the cart before the horse and bring up a
requester to create the log message before the commit is ready? Why
have I _never_ seen a CLI user complain about the length of time it
takes for the editor to come up during a commit? Granted I haven't been
reading the users list in a while, but I'm fairly confident that only
the TSVN (and possibly Subclipse) users have this concern about performance.

Here's a test:

1) Check out the same tree twice
2) Make the same changes in both trees (preferrably deep so there is
some serious tree-walking going on)
3) Commit once using the standard Windows Subversion CLI and time how
long it takes before the editor pops up
4) Do the same thing in TSVN and wait until the filelist is complete
5) Tell us what you found

I'm not saying that it shouldn't be taken seriously. I'm only saying
that the non-standard way that TSVN has chosen to implement commits
should not force the rest of the user base to accept a poorer
implementation. While I agree that it should be taken into account, but
I violently disagree that a feature for an add-on should drive
development of the core project.

This is pure fantasy and I'm not going to even bother to refute it.
