Yes, that is a problem.

Agreed.  It is important to get a good workflow, and with the program
that I attached, it is inelegant that it does the "git commit" itself,
because it takes away flexibility in what args one might pass to "git

So more work is needed...  I wonder if adding code into one of Git's
hook might work?

Also I met Alfred Szmidt at the GNU hackers meeting in Bristol, and he
was working on a solution for Emacs - but I think that assumes doing
the commit from Emacs.
