I could be talked into renaming the option to something else and
using -m in a way that is CVS compatible.

That flag originally came from JIT, which uses:

  -M <commit>   literally take the commit message, no editing necessary;
  -m <commit>   start with commit message in this one but have user edit;

  -l <file>     use the log message in this file;
  -l -          read the log message from stdin.
