Yes, the two radically different use-cases for dealing with a file
that is schedule-add-with-history are

* "Show me exactly what's going to be sent into the repository."

* "Show me my local edits."

They are mutually exclusive behaviors, but both are legitimate things
you may want to do with a schedule-add-with-history file. One
behavior should be the default, and the other should be toggled by a
switch. At the moment, the 2nd behavior is all we do.

You make a good argument that the 1st behavior should be the default,
for the sake of consistency with other diff commands. If it's
changed, please at least make the 2nd behavior still triggerable
somehow.
