Yes my vote goes:

        -m "message"
        -c "from this commit, literally."
        -C "from this commit, but let me edit the log further."
        -F "from this file."
        -F - <stdin

I am a disturbed individual who always works in Emacs and run
"git commit" in the compilation buffer, setting EDITOR to
emacsclient.  Admittably the compilation buffer uses pty, so
"test -t 0" would succeed, though.
