Oops, I read about `--pretty` in pretty-formats.txt and didn't realize
that `--format` existed.  However, your patch is still wrong because
there seems to be a subtle (and confusing) difference between
`--pretty` and `--format`.  In the latter, you can't omit the format,
and expect it to be picked up from format.pretty:

  $ git log --format
  fatal: unrecognized argument: --format

Instead, you have to specify the format explicitly:

  $ git log --format=medium

So, we should change the commit message in my patch?
