Gosh, Chapter one of the SVN book doesn't say anything about the user
having to DO anything after issuing a commit command!

Yes, TextWrangler opens a file called "svn-commit.2.tmp" with the
following contents (not including the dashed lines):
--This line, and those below, will be ignored--

M foo.c
I typed "fubar" at the top of the file, saved it, and closed the
window -- and indeed the commit command finished with this three-line
Sending foo.c
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 2.

What is the significance of the commit message that I type? Ie what
does svn do with the "fubar"?
