Well I tend to disagree here. I see a commit message as a way to convey
important notes about a commit. The files touched by a commit are listed,
and the repository is there for anybody to see, if one is interested in
the details. Let's not bury an important key note beneath a mountain of details.

I would like to avoid to have to write a line like this

- add a patch file to fix an include line that used the deprecated
  header alloc.h instead of stdlib.h

for a patch file like this

- #include <alloc.h>
+ #include <stdlib.h>

Let's please keep things slim and functional :)
