Really? I think we should take whatever improvements we can get,
rather than saying "oh, and you need to support all this legacy
baggage as well." While they are useful to some folks, I don't think
they are can't-live-without-absolutely-must-have features. I'm mean,
if we're thinking outside the box, let's think Outside the BOX, and
try not to pigeon hole ourselves.

It would be interesting to see the usage of 'log -g' and 'blame -g'.
I believe Tortoise uses them as the default under-the-hood, so that
probably inflates the actual usage numbers quite a bit.
