vim does that with syntax highlighting automatically nowadays when it
notices you are writing a commit message. If you need an indication on
your line width, may I suggest you configure your editor appropriately?

You could have taken the time to actually adjust this to what MacPorts'
Trac instance accepts. See
for the description of the plugins that does this for us and
for the configuration we use.

Could use the documented keywords GitHub accepts to handle pull requests
(you can close pull requests from commit messages!)

Additionally, I don't like the upper case keywords.
