Even this has serious issues:
* what should the commit dialog show? Group the entries by repository?
Or just show all entries the same way as now so the user won't even
notice which entries are from which working copy?
* using the same log message for multiple commits is something we must
not make easier to do for users. It is a very bad practice and should be
avoided at all costs. If we would provide this 'feature', then we would
make it easier for users to do bad things.
