Because we keep hearing that it confuses people (probably because they
expect log to be about the repository, by default, not about a local
path that was never explicitly mentioned). And to tell the truth,
it's bitten me a couple of times, even.

There aren't many other commands for which "defaulting to the
repository" would make sense, so searching for surface consistency
here doesn't help, I think.

Sure, but update needs to choose a local path to work at all. Log
does not. They're about different things.

I take it that the default log behavior has never confused you, then?
