Reviewing commit messages is one thing that could definitely be nicer
with GitLab (and you can't comment on them either). Getting GitLab to do
it for us would mean patching GitLab, but I might be able to take a
quick look at it for single-commit branches at least (this is what
GitHub does). Multi-commit branches will be trickier.

One problem I see right off the bat though would be that the description
doesn't get edited if the commit message is revised. I doubt that would
be trivial to get right though :/ .
