git commit -m to pre-fill commit title

See original GitHub issue

With husky setup, the -m is lost.

I’m a CLI guru, so if I typed -m already, it should be used as a base, for example, add the category to it unless missing.

$ git commit -m 'Add prepare commit msg hook'
$ git commit -m 'feat: Add prepare commit msg hook'

currently have to re-type everything with several prompts. kind of slows down the commit process, driving away from the git hook setup.

Husky part:
