I appreciate your motivation, but IMHO keep cvs log messages to below 5
lines (try reading the output of cvs log with multiple such messages to
see the problem).
If you think it needs further explanation, discuss it on -dev-eng and if
you find it really important add the Message ID/whatever of that thread
to the message or in the code (whatever is more appropriate).
Hmmm... Maybe we could put this into cvs-howto.txt?
