+1, except I'd condense --diff-all and --show-all-paths to a single
additional option named, I dunno, --full-revision. </bikeshed>

I agree about wanting to change the default meaning of --diff.
Whether we can get away with such an interface change, I'm not sure.

+1 again. Final thought: --depth plus --full-revision doesn't really
make sense, does it? If so, what would it do?
