Maybe it would be better to assume that -r with no path args assumes
root of wc repo. That way Sussman's case of -r X:Y with no args still
works so long as he adds implicit "." (or whatever paths he wants). I
can see both sides as being correct here. The no-implicit-dot when -r is
used seems to make the best sense (least work for both cases).
