Tla lets you do just the same thing, except it doesn't automatically
present the log to you one last (or in many cases the first) time. If
you wanted the OpenCM behavior, it sounds pretty easy to implement as a
hook on commit (just call $EDITOR `tla make-log --dir $TREE-ROOT` or
something like that).

I think tla is doing pretty good in this regard; there are lots of
options for how to do things, even those that Tom doesn't feel are
optimal. The bad thing about having so many options is that you have to
learn a bunch of them well enough to make an informed decision about
which one to use, and understand the implications of that decision.
