Hah. Guess you must be laughing at me for being so out of the loop.
Looks like non-modal commit dialogs are already in the works, at least
for CVS. So guess that answers that.

I was thinking more along the lines of commit templates, or some such,
and how nifty it is that you can get that bugzilla field in some commit
boxes, if you enable it, and how nice it would be to have something like
that but from a template, and maybe even something that could get
contributed back to subversion itself, in some form, maybe variable
substitution or whatnot. But anyway, what I was thinking of would need
more realestate, and be more of a view than a dialog, but I'll just wait
and see how the CVS idea comes about or whatever.

Mylar does look nifty, and I like how it's 3.2M4-able. Bleeding edges
pay off too...

Well, back to the grind and whatnot. Thanks for all your ideas everyone!
