Allow to edit the commit message

Sometimes, when you want to undo things (for example with reset --hard),
it's useful to have something that tells you where to go back to in
order to undo a certain action. If all messages look the same that's
harder to do.
Also, even if the user carelessly wrote a message that gives a clue
about the file content, that would be the user's fault and it would have
nothing to do with the ability to manually edit commit messages. Not to
mention that even with a clue in the commit message, a malicious party
still couldn't do much without the user's private key.
At least that's my view on this. If I'm being too disingenuous then I'm
sorry. I can live without this after all.
