While I understand the usefulness of the diff feature, it is not useful to everyone, e.g. those using almost exclusively ``commit -m message``.
The editor window doesn't pop up when you provide the -m flag, so the diff output is not relevant.
Of course it would be nice if hg made it easier (a hgrc option, for example) to do this.
BTW, I had not heard of hgeditor before, and wrote a small hg extension to do what you want (with HG: prefix :) before I saw that others had already replied with hgeditor. The extension had 10 lines of code.
We should find a place (i.e. repository) to stash these useful add-ons and hacks so that all Python developers can find them.
