And that's exactly why I'd like to have this as an option! If the
project admin decides that the log message template must not be static
but follow a certain policy which requires dynamic templates, then ok,
TSVN would have to wait (and therefore the user too). But I'd say most
projects are satisfied with static templates and would just be very
upset with the forced delay.
