2 CVS related feature requests

CVS integration works great, by the way.  Thanks.

There are only two things I would like to have added:
1. I would like the CVS commit log message to be appended to the bug, if possible.  I realize this would make some bugs get very long lists of changes, but I think it would be handy as there is some good information in those logs sometimes, that doesn't get mentioned in the bug proper.

2. If a file has been modified multiple times for one bug, don't list it in the Checkins list for every time it has been modified.  Instead, list it once with all of the versions to the right of it:

i.e. not:
/Module/file.c 1.4
/Module/file.c 1.5
/Module/file.c 1.6

/Module/file.c 1.4 1.5 1.6

Great suggestions, I whole-heartedly second them.

Including the commit comments would be seriously wonderful, mostly, as it brings the "system" closer to something with a single point of data entry.
