Nice Idea! But why not simply take all the comment instead of trying to
'guess' the first line? I often try to provide a brief description for the
commit on the command line and a longer one on the task (including the
shorter from the commit plus extra infos). With your change I could simply
add a single, more extensive description when comitting. Maybe the 'Patch
by:', etc. fields should be filtered out though (by identifyingb them using
the ':' or 'by*:'. Just my 2 cent...
