In Emacs it's easier to select files and to write a log message
than doing the same in the command line.

But currently vc mode is limited to a small set of supported arguments.
Allowing to specify the command line arguments will give the user the
full power of the command line when doing vc operations from Emacs.

Maybe, --amend is a special case that requires special processing.
But generally it's also desirable to be able to specify the command line
arguments from the *VC-log* buffer.
