svn and cvs about default commit log ...

svn is superior to cvs (on which the former is based) in a number of ways, I believe. I haven't bitten by the non-atomic checkins of cvs etc. but I believe that svn is better than cvs.

But I thought there is one aspect (maybe minor) when it comes to the commit logs. For example, with cvs this is what I see in the editor session when I am checking in:

  CVS: Committing in .
  CVS: 
  CVS: Modified Files:
  CVS:  Tag: My_Test_Branch
  CVS:    Foo.java Bar.java

With svn, I see:


  1 
  2 --This line, and those below, will be ignored--
  3 
  4 M    Foo.java Bar.java

Thus, there is no indication of the branch or the tag name! It's not immediately evident where I am checking in (I know there are ways to ensure it, but ...).

Why would they regress on this default behavior?
