I don't think anything has changed here in 2.10. Running "git log
--oneline --show-signature" has _always_ been horribly ugly. However,
2.10 did introduce the "log.showsignature" config, which makes "git log
--oneline" pretty unusable when it is enabled. Ditto for one-liner uses
of "--format".

I think we should probably ignore the config entirely when using any of
the one-liner formats (and I'd include --format, too, even though it can
sometimes be multi-line; it already has %GG to include that information
as appropriate).

Another option would be to somehow represent the signature information
in the --oneline output, but I think I'd rather leave that for people to
experiment with using "--format".
