      Description

      It would be nice if aptana would show me when a line in the commit message field is longer than 50 chars so i know when I have to do an linebreak. Because normaly git commit messages should be never have longer lines than 50 chars.

      From here (http://365git.tumblr.com/post/3308646748/writing-git-commit-messages), the suggestion is 50 chars is a good length. We could show a grey line in the text field, much like is done in the regular editor.

      We should also have a command-line option to change the value.
