Also, I remember many times seeing the list in CVS and realizing that my
change wasn't right.  But, I'd just typed a long description.  So, I
have to save it to a different file and put the blank buffer back, or
CVS will do the commit.

By auto-running the editor, there is no convenient way to not do the
commit.  Most systems rely on an unchanged file indicating an abort of
the change (Perforce makes you exit the editor twice).  By making the
editor automatic as part of commit, we would force the description to be
written at the end.

I don't have much of a problem saving my message to a different file to pull it back in after my correction. That hasn't happened very frequently.

It is a bit annoying to have to exit twice. However, the most common case is you're ready to commit, you can type up a message and go. IMO, the most common case should require the least effort.
