Or the user may want to see only changes to the documentation, e.g.

        $ git show master Documentation/

so removing a SP is a regression in the other way around.

Given that "refer to an object in a tree" is a much less often used
operation, I have a feeling that the current behaviour happens to
make a good trade-off between these two conflicting purposes that
cannot be satisfied both at the same time.
