Oh, I see now.
I guess that means the intended justification is the following?
The git am -d/--dotest option has errored out with a message
since e72c7406 (am: remove support for -d .dotest, 2008-03-04).
The error message about lack of support was eliminated along
with other cleanups (probably by mistake) a year later by
removing the option from the option table in 98ef23b3 (git-am:
minor cleanups, 2009-01-28).
But the code to handle -d and --dotest stayed around even though
ever since then it could not be tripped. Remove this dead code.
Noticed because the error message starts with a '-' and
xgettext does not cope well with that.
