The easiest and most reliable thing to do is to "jot down your intentions"
in the code. That is what the comments in code are for. (Anyone can read
code to see what it's doing; very few can (can anyone??) read uncommented
code and discern the programmer's intent!!!) When you are reviewing your
changes at checkin time, all your notes are right there, you can copy and
paste them from the diff/merge window and build your commit log message.
