Thanks. That is exactly what I was implying in my suggestion of --revs. A
new option that indicates a cherry-picked revision.

While I would also be in favor of cmpilato's suggestion, I do think that
one could reasonably argue that by making this change you might just be
creating more confusion once the user gets around to merging a range of
revisions. It just bring up the whole X-1 argument again.
