git-commit: filter out log message lines only when editor was run.
The current behaviour strips out lines starting with a # even when fed through stdin or -m. This is particularly bad when importing history from another SCM (tailor 0.9.23 uses git-commit). In the best cases all lines are stripped and the commit fails with a confusing "empty log message" error, but in many cases the commit is done, with loss of information. Note that it is quite peculiar to just have "#" handled as a leading comment char here. One commonly meet CVS: or CG: or STG: as prefixes, and using GIT: would be more robust as well as consistent with other commit tools. However, that would break any tool relying on the # (if any).
