Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Please provide any additional information below.
I am dealing with this issue because my system has GUESS_SUMMARY=1 set in
the .reviewboardrc by our compliance system. I can't just turn it off, even
though I would like to because it gets re-enabled immediately. I have been
working around this by manually editing the summary after posting, or with
squashing when it is a smaller commit. I still think that logically the
guess would be more accurate when pulling in from the first commit message
when guessing the summary.
