I have a bad habit of commiting a lot of files with changes at once. I use the compare feature when creating my commit message to make sure I mention all of my changes. However I frequently have to close and re-open the commit window so I can keep going through my files without keep using the scroll sideways arrows to get back to the "Commit" tab.
Let's at least evaluate how much work it'd be
Thanks for adding me on CC. I have to agree that it would be nice to have since if you are commiting anything you should be looking on all your changes, so the work with tabs is quite uncomfortable then.
there you go: http://hg.netbeans.org/core-main/rev/e47cb5b3e91a, not that much work as i had expected.

Log: #198192 - SVN commit window file tabs should be close-able.
making diff tabs in svn, hg and git commit panels closeable
That's great. Thanks for doing that Ondra, works well in daily build.
