Great, thanks!

IMHO: Do not require --include-externals. If I only want to commit a single file which happens to reside inside an external subdirectory, and give that file explicitly, I do not want to say "--include-externals".

Here, I say yes. We also do not allow to commit when the working copy is not at head revision.
