I requested earlier on a feature for log *files*.  It allows me to type 
up a file PRIOR to the commit operation, instead of during.  Then I 

 $ darcs record --all --logfile=MY.LOG.FILE ...etc...

and it records it.  The very first line of the file is the obligatory 
short comment.  The remainder of the file is treated as a long comment.  
It's become absolutely invaluable to me.

By using this approach, you can always have a long comment available when 
commiting any new changes.

Hope that helps.
