FWIW, I'm a bit suspicious of the idea that we need to make the commit
messages automated-tool-friendly.  What tools are there that would need
to extract this info, and would we trust them if they didn't understand

I'm on board with Bruce's template as being a checklist of points to be
sure to cover when composing a commit message.  I'm not sure we need
fixed-format rules.
