If we can know in advance whether the repository _requires_ a with-files
template, then the commit dialog could become two stage.

1. User selects the files to use, and editing the log messages is
disabled.
2. Click a 'Next' button.
3. Get template from hook, shovel or friendly bacterium.
4. Fill in template and click 'Commit'.

But users who don't require the with-files template will hate having to
wait before typing the message. So we either need static/dynamic
recorded in a prop/iprop, or getting the without-files template has to
inform you that there is a with-files template which should override it.
