+1 to this one. I think it is a no-brainer that we should definitely just do.

I am not sure about using --depth for this. I think I would just use
-R. If you are going to use depth, then you need to make all of the
different depth options have some kind of meaning, and I cannot see
that being useful for this. You pretty much either want to just base
it on the target, or on everything (fully recursive).

Are you proposing any changes in the format of the output? My
assumption is no. IOW, you are not going to try to report that a
certain subtree needs revisions that the target does not.
