If that is your only concern, I suspect it would be extremely likely
that someone would add an API flag (corresponding to a CLI command like
'--no-log-template') which wouldn't contact the repository. Actually,
since you are running status followed by commit with a prewritten log
entry, you shouldn't see the round-trip ever, since it is only intended
to happen if the commit doesn't include a log entry (corresponding to
"-F" in the CLI).
