Why exactly? It seems we can declare anything on a certain named changelist
will be ignored from commit. All we have to do is change the commit code to
do this ignoring. IOW, we could just recreate the TortoiseSVN feature and
nothing more. I do not see where this changes the changelist code.

But ok, we can do that. Still, the question remains: what about Johan & Co.,

I do not think we HAVE to do this feature. It would be nice, but it seems
to raise some challenging problems that make it less nice. Personally, I
just think we should not do anything, including the changelists, and leave
the recommendation of using a template.
