Personally, I use the commit window to revisit all changes I've made to
the code (by opening a diff for each changed file and going over it
again) and write the changelog as I go along.

This helped me find some mistakes at the last possible moment, and it
also means I can just hack away at the code without having to document
every change immediately, which I'd find rather distracting...

Just my 0.02 EYPO...
