Yeah, that makes sense.

I think it is just trying to compare the "log.decorate" variable to the
"--decorate" command-line option. Notice that it generates the expected
output by running the latter. So I think it would be OK (and if not,
I think it would make sense to update the test, as it does not care
about the specific format).

Google Code Search doesn't show anything interesting, though I suppose
its results are getting continually out of date (they claim to have shut
it down, though you can still query it if you use the right URL).
