  % tla set-message [--log LOG] [VERSION]
    Using LOG (or invoking $EDITOR, if necessary)
    perform an empty (no changes) commit to VERSION
    using LOG as the log message.

    The mangled log message will include a version
    variable setting:

        set-version-var: message-revision "REV"

        where REV is the name of this revision.

  % tla message [REVISION]

    Let MSGREV := tla version-var --from REV message-revision


       cat the log message for MSGREV

  % tla commit --message [....]

    Suppose that REV is the revision that this commit will

    Then the --message option makes this commit equivalent to:

        % tla set-version-var message-revision '"REV"'
        % tla commit [....]

    In other words, it's a normal commit that also sets 
    the version message.


Category and Branch messages:

For every category, the latest log message of:


is the category message.

For every branch, the latest log message of


is the branch message.

Commands such as:

  % tla set-message --category [--log LOG] [CATEGORY]
  % tla set-message --branch [--log LOG] [BRANCH]

should work.
