Well, it helps a little that our version has some text reminding them
why (but presuming that lack of message was a commit accident, since
it's also *policy* to have detailed messages - plus we've had enough
examples of digging back and having to figure out what people were
thinking when they made the commit that people actually believe in
"writing for a future audience" (and "writing so you don't have to
figure out the problem again when someone asks about it".) Without
that, sure, it would be a Technical Solution to a Social Problem
anti-pattern...
