I would just leave it as it is right now.
But maybe wait for others to express their opinion - I'm maybe not the
one you should listen to here...

The problem I have here is that while TSVN has to wait for the script to
finish, it is basically blocked.

How about implementing a custom window message which the script could
send, containing the modified text?

That way, TSVN could simply start the script and go on. The script once
it has the information it needs could then send the message back to the
TSVN commit dialog.

Or: instead of registering a custom window message, pass the handle of
the edit control in the commit dialog (converted to a LONG) to the
script, and the script could then use the existing message WM_SETTEXT to
change the text of the control directly.
(WM_SETTEXT is handled differently by Windows than other messages, to
make it easier to send it cross-process and also it caches the text to

Is that necessary?
