Why it was changed:
it's not easy to read a message in a combobox, and the combobox needs to
be very wide for it to be useful at all for this.

Committing several times with the same log message is not good practice.
Either commit all those in one commit (if they belong together - this is
SVN, not CVS where each file is committed individually), or choose
different log messages - otherwise if you use the same log message for
everything, they don't make much sense.
So: no, TSVN will not change and provide an easy button to do this: we
don't make it easy to do bad practices.
