You have a good point there, followed up by a bad suggestion. :-)

-r5:16 does *not* include revision 5. I don't know if that is consistent
with Ben's reportion intentions or not. Ben?

But -c5-16 means nothing, and I'd rather read "revisions 5-16" (which has no
command-line-option utility, but has a crystal-clear meaning) than something
which looks like a command-line option but ain't.
