What is the easiest way to make the Check In Comments mandatory on a document library in SharePoint 2010? I've tried an event receiver, but it does not work. I've tried making a custom column but it doesn't work because when you upload a document it requires that field so it fails.

pleeeeease help. I've searched to infinity and beyond for this, and no post, blog or anyone has given a clear answer.
