Who said anything about "searching for breaks?"

The whole idea of the commit log is to give a brief summary of what was
done. Not necessarily looking for breaks, it can also make is easy to
know which ones are inconsequential. But "Bugger" doesn't say "this is
inconsequential." There's no context in that description to tell if it's
meant to imply that it was inconsequential or if it was just someone
being lazy and not feeling like writing a commit message.
