I see your point of view. I'm always careful and encourage other people to always be careful to review all their commits before committing. It's very easy, for example, to refactor some variable "e" to "localException" and accidentally muck up all the comments about somebody else's variable "e" and so forth. So it's important to review and ensure what you're actually committing is what you *think* you're committing, before you commit.

In other words, "Don't do that." ;-)
