I had kind of expected more of an integration with gitk, and just using 
"gitk" as the generic name for "git tk interface", it would perhaps make 
more sense to just interface it that way, and thus one logical (?) thing 
to do would be to just make the command be

	gitk commit

the same way we have "git commit". Hmm?

But maybe I'm just strange.
