I don't agree that in all cases the Misc/NEWS entry and the checkin comment must be wholly different.  While I concur that that's called for now and again, I believe this to be rare.  Most checkins are small changes, and a single-line summary for both Misc/NEWS and the first line of the checkin comment will suffice.

However, clearly the tool should *support* making them wholly separate.  But that's easy to support.  pyci now supports a "-n" or "--newsonly" flag, which instructs it to only add the Misc/NEWS item and to not check in.  This is presumably also nicer for folks used to shell-integrated hg tools (TortoiseHG etc).

I think it's important that this *not* be the default behavior, as it's going to be hard enough to get the core dev community to adopt this tool, and I would prefer it make the experience nicer rather than clunkier.
