I don't think that's what Jim was doing at all.  What he was doing was
not defending Configure, but protesting the attack on it.

I think he has a very good point: the CVS commit logs have been wandering
away from prose descriptions of what was changed and what the change
fixed.  Nowadays they contain anything from a weather report to a
a diatribe about some unrelated (or only tenuously related) aspect of
the project.

Let's keep the philosophical discussions in email, and not the CVS logs.
Someone looking at a change six months from now is likely to have no clew
about the discussion environment, and care less.  It's going to want to
know what the change fixed.
