Then you have an education problem among your developers. You should
be fixing that problem by educating your developers on the proper use
of a revision control system, not creating scripts to support their
ignorance. All developers using Subversion should be encouraged to
read as much of the book as possible: http://svnbook.org/ (or other
books on the topic of Subversion -- there are versions in other
languages as well in case that's helpful)

It's pretty common to need to change multiple files in order to
effect a particular change. Your script seems to encourage committing
after changing each file. That's probably a bad idea.

It's also pretty silly to offer an option to use set the log message
of a commit to the diff of the commit.
