cherrypick option to indicate original commit

This is not a bug but a feature request.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open Log window on a repo with two or more branches
- Select a commit from one branch
- Select cherrypick commit...
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
the cherrypick window opens up but there's no way to get the equivalent of -x option from the command line:
From the git docs
When recording the commit, append a line that says "(cherry picked from commit …)" to the original commit message in order to indicate which commit this change was cherry-picked from. This is done only for cherry picks without conflicts. Do not use this option if you are cherry-picking from your private branch because the information is useless to the recipient. If on the other hand you are cherry-picking between two publicly visible branches (e.g. backporting a fix to a maintenance branch for an older release from a development branch), adding this information can be useful.

This is exactly what I'm looking for.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Latest 126.96.36.199 / Win XP SP3 or Win 7 Ultimate
