FR: Lock message on Commit

I have a couple of non-programming users who utilize TortoiseSVN with their Excel spreadsheets. I instructed them to utilize "Get Lock" religiously. Recently they asked for something that i thought makes total sense, i am posting it here.

Their words: "When i get lock, i enter a message detailing what i am doing, so that others know why i took out the lock. How come when i go to Commit i can't see my own lock message anywhere? Many times i can't remember exactly what i wrote when i took out the lock - and it would serve as a great "default" commit message anyway - i could just edit it and go ahead with comitting."

Please consider, thanks.

P.S: From personal view: Ability to switch TortoiseSVN into "Check Out - Modify - Check In" mode for a specific folder in a repository where binary resources are kept would be most appreciated too. It would save lots of training and avoid so many issues. Copy - Modify - Merge simply doesn't work with non-mergeable resources. I am surpised that this isn't obvious after so many years.

Anyway, thanks for considering.
