Bug Description

It would be nice if qdiff would show an editable commit message at the bottom of the window when it is invoked from qcommit. This is useful when you have to look at the diff to remind yourself what changed.

Interesting idea. The other option which will solve your issue is to
open the diff in a tab.

This would be a very nice addition to the GUI. At the moment, I tend to use 'bzr ci --show-diff' with a Vim plugin that puts the diff in a vertically-split preview window. I've always found it beneficial to see the diff at the same time as writing the commit message. Being able to do this with qbzr would be really useful.

There was wishlist to see diff directly in qcommit window. I think we can satisfy this by putting qdiff widget into new tab in the bottom half of qcommit. I think it should satisfy most of the people.

Maybe without toolbar, just diffview
