Most of the functionality is actually controlled by the scm bundles. For
the git bundle, it initially writes output to the html output window before
opening the commit window. I have a pull request submitted to only show the
html output window after closing the commit window (e.g., canceling or
committing). Maybe we should also not send anything to the output window
when canceling the commit too? So for this case (canceling) the other
window would not be displayed at all.

 The commit window does accept a "--log" option that does just as you
describe. Although I am not not aware of any bundle actually using this
option (maybe the svn bundle??, I've only looked that the git and hg
bundles). Also, the git bundle labels the "update commit message" as "M"
which tells the commit window to enable it by default.

I do have a local change for the git bundle to include the last commit
message automatically. As for the "enable by default", the status could be
change to "?" or "X", I think, so that it is not enabled by default.

I am willing to submit pull requests to make the necessary changes to the
git bundle to accommodate your comments, if that would be something of
general interest.
