Oh yes. Never thought about that. Thanks for pointing out.

I'm running Git under Cygwin and the biggest annoyance that I face
with aliases is that it messes around with file modes. I my output
would contain numerous:

diff --git a/<path> b/<path>
old mode 100755
new mode 100644

And this happens with every other aliase that I set.
