Feature request

Hello everyone,

Over the last two years, I've become a very passionate user of TortoiseSVN.

I consider it a very realiable and convenient interface to SVN, and probably the best there is.

But you folks know that anyway ;)

However, I have a suggestion for a new feature:
I often work for a day, sometimes two, until I commit my work, sometimes even longer (that's my working style, other people will check in more often, of course).

However, with this working style, I'm not keeping track of the changes so easily, because the tend to accumulate, so everytime I have I check in, I have to make diffs on files to see what I changed. This is not a bad thing to do, as you might reconsider your changes, however, I'd find it convenient to be able to edit the commit message way before check in, everytime I start working on a file, for instance.

So what I'm proposing is this:

An entry in the shell extension, which says 'checkin notepad' (or something similar). This entry brings up an editor with a text field, similar to the one shown in the commit dialog. All you really do there is to edit the next checkin message. This message is stored globally for the project's root directory, and is visible again in the commit dialog (either as default, or as one of the suggestions).

Well, that's about it, actually.

So what do you think? Neat feature or dumb idea?
