Hmm, more confirmation dialogs tend to mean more annoyance for users,
especially considering that the line length limit is a
project-specific _policy_ (so this has the potential to annoy a lot of
people), and also because there often are legitimate reasons for
exceeding the limit (such as pasting in URLs).

As an alternative to a confirmation dialog, how about instead adding a
_warning_ message (perhaps with red text) on the window itself
alongside to the commit message field (below or above it or
something)? Is that something that could be triggered by a text widget

Does this take TABs into account?
