Yeah, I do not think it is likely.  Among the in-tree scripts,
git-stash does use rev-list --oneline but the purpose of the call
exactly is to grab a human readable one line summary, and it will be
happy with any change to make --oneline more human readble.

t4202 has many invocations of "log --oneline --decorate", though;
these things do get tested.
