Thanks for the intial reivew. I updated the patch with a test and
documentation for the new option. Happy to merge the test into one of
the existing test files, I read t/README and greping around I did not
find a place that looked like a good fit. 

I added the updated patch as an mutt inline attachment now.

Cheers,
 Michael

Subject: [PATCH] support: git show --follow-symlinks HEAD:symlink

Add support for the `--follow-symlinks` options to git-show. This
allows to write:

    git show --follow-symlink HEAD:path-a-symlink

to get the content of the symlinked file.
