That doesn't really answer the question. Our changelog.html file is
really just a log of all commits and their messages. The OP wants to
paste a list of changed files in his WC so as to generate the commit
message in the first place (I guess in a manner similar to subversion
where every changed file is listed in the commit message, followed by a
description of what changed and why).

Seems like a reasonable request to make Ctrl-A Ctrl-C work here. Not
sure whether it should copy just the file names or all the columns. I
would think filenames-only should be adequate as the description has to
be entered by hand anyway and having the local/remote status for text
and props, plus lock/lock-message would just mean wearing out the delete
