Suggestions regarding "svn-commit.tmp" management

Hello there

When a commit operation fails, subversion fortunately saves the message
provided using the editor in the "svn-commit.tmp" file. However, this
file seems to be completely ignored later. What about the following
suggestions?

- When a "svn-commit.tmp" file exists, its content should be
automatically inserted in the interactive editor instead of the usual
empty message. I think that should improve user experience when trying
to commit again after fixing the error which occurred during the first
commit attempt.

- When successfully committing some change, the possibly existing
"svn-commit.tmp" file should be automatically deleted. It would avoid
doing it by hand or getting "? svn-commit.tmp" in the status report.

Those behaviors of course apply to every operation which requires a
message.

What do you think?

Best regards.
