git-gui: Add option for changing the width of the commit message text box
The width of the commit message text area is currently hard-coded to 75 characters. This value might be not optimal for some projects. For instance users who would like to generate GNU-style ChangeLog file from git commit message might prefer commit messages of width no longer than 70 characters. This patch adds a global and per repository option "Commit Message Text Width", which could be used to change the width of the commit message text area.
