allow edit of multiple log messages.

Feature suggestion.

On the Show Log screen, would you consider enabling the "Edit Log Message"
context menu item if multiple revisions are selected, AND all revisions have
the exact same log message?

We sometimes include the phrase "DO NOT MERGE - ItemId nnnn" as part of a
commit message.
Typically for a small change that is not big enough to justify a branch but
large enough to require some extended testing after the commit.
The DO NOT MERGE means that the build engineer will ignore that revision
when merging changes into a build branch for customer packaging.

Once the extended testing has complete, we go back and edit the log messages
and strip out the DO NOT MERGE. If there are 2 or 3 commits for the same
piece of work, this can be extra clicking around that I think can be

While this may not be best practice it works for the processes we have in
