Re: Feature Request: Commit Scratch pad

I'm with Kurt on this one. I do have some trouble convincing others here of
the value of this exercise, but it is _very_valuable_.

I click the commit, then visit _every_ file with tsvn diff/merge to make
sure that all the changes I expect are there and no unexpected changes are
there. As I review the changes, I generate my log entry. If a file that is
not associated with the changes I'm committing is found, I just un-check it
and leave it for another commit.

It seems time consuming, but the 15 minutes spent saves hours within weeks
(if not days.)
