[kforge-dev] grievous svn commit comment behaviour

i've been musing over this voracious svn commentary issue. i found
that 'svn commit' would comment the directory i ran that it, with the
comment i intended for the file below it; but that 'svn commit .'
works downwards through the tree even more voraciously, and 'svn
commit *' isn't an option.

it is a little frustrating. i tend to make lots of small
interconnected changes and commit lots at once, so everything gets
similar commentary. in trying to make more granular ones i wonder at
the fast-ticking version number, i suppose it will get up into the
high hundreds without much effort, one just gets used to that?

the line length chops off my comments which tend to be pretty verbose;
i have dodgy scripts to generate rss feeds of my cvs commit comments;
i should like to replicate that.
