The temp file already existed in svn_client_get_commit_log3_t.
I didn't add this parameter and I didn't add documentation for it.

What to do about multi-WC commits is a good question.
I'll think about that.

cmpilato used a mapping from log template to a list of commit items.
I'm considering alternatives right now but wanted to change the way
the templates are passed to the API consumer first.

Do you agree that passing templates to the callback is better?
This commit didn't really want to change much more than that.
