Oh, I've seen much worse than this.

Mostly in other projects, but still.

I can even imagine a situation (from having been in it for other
projects a few times) where I would have found this commit message
useful enough to have not needed any more. A more detailed message
certainly wouldn't have hurt, but this one wouldn't have stood out as a
"WTF did this do?" commit...

side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
