git rev-list --max-count=n

seems to always list the _last_ (newest) n commits. Is there any 
functionality to list the _first_ n commits?

I've tried to add --reverse hoping that this would do it but it does 

The manual could be a bit more clear about that:
    --max-count=<number>   Limit the number of commits to output.

If it really would only limit the _output_ (like head -n), then 
IMO --reverse should do what I want.

Regarding my initial question. Maybe we could support
to list the first n commits.
