If you go read the Bazaar ticket about this issue, you'll see that the
unchanging nature of the past is not incompatible with "editing past
commit messages".  You only need to commit a new additional change that
contains a note "in the future, whenever the user asks for the commit
message of commit nb XXX, please return this new text instead of the one
stored in the immutable history".
