[TxMt] Recent change to the SVN commit pane

Hi All,
    I've been a Textmate user for a long time but I'm new here on the list. Recently the SVN commit pane changed from a dialog to a modal pane. I sent a message to feedback but was advised that I would be better raising it as a discussion here. I cannot find a previous thread that explains the design decision for the change.

I tend to open a full diff before starting the commit so that I can review my changes and write the commit message accordingly.  Now I have to remember to double-click the tab of the diff file to move it to a separate window because the modality stops me from accessing the tabs.  I also cannot browse the actual code on the tabs.

I presume that the modality change is to stop a novice from continuing to edit files before hitting Commit and therefore not necessarily committing everything?  (I don't consider myself a novice).  :-)
