Yet another question is how to deal with commit message specific
"syntax highlighting". Currently, parsing commit message line by line,
we treat specially signoff lines (syntax highlighting, and removing
trailing empty lines after signoff), empty lines (we collapse consecutive
empty lines); the rest goes through format_log_line_html... and committags.

Tag messages have another specific syntax highlighting, namely PGP/GPG
signature part, which should be syntax highlighted I think (and not 
subject to committags replacements).

Some of the problems of marking replacements as not to be committags 
searched and not to be HTML escaped can be dealt with by changing the
order of committags. For example having 'URL' tag as first tag to check
we avoid invoking it on committag replacements links.
