This is far out, but ... whole words (should/will/have to) be
localizable. I know we haven't thought about i18n and l10n much yet, but
maybe it's not a bad time to start.

IIRC we /did/ talk about having a verbosity switch, so maybe we should
use single characters (non-localizable) by default, and whole words
(localizable) at a higher verbosity level. And not just for commit, of
course.
