I was too lazy to find something that had stable keywords, but I'm
sure substituting the appropriate filename and grepping would work
fine.  The trick is to put the "--" in the command line.

However, you could hardly be blamed for hitting your head against the
wall trying to figure out how to do this.  I had to google it as I've
run into this myself.  As many have said git is an amazing data model
with a terrible UI.
