The commit dialog is already very crowded. Would something like this
really be worth another checkbox or button?

That should already work:
Settings dialog->General->dialogs 2->Reopen commit and branch/tag dialog
after a commit failed.

right-click on folder, choose "create patch", select all entries, click
ok. then click on "copy to clipboard" and the diff viewer will open.

But when you create a patch, there's no place to enter a log message.
We'd have to add something like that to the "create patch" dialog.
And where would we store that log message after the patch got applied to
a working copy?

You mean overlay icons? There are no more spots left, so no more icons

Really? The checks are preserved for me when I double click on items.
