We do have a test helper for this, which is the first patch in the series. This rev-parse option is designed to be useful to scripters more than anything else, and it will make an appearance in a later series. I sent it here since it's vaguely useful for tests and I also wanted to make sure it was available sooner rather than later so folks can start using it. -- brian m. carlson: Houston, Texas, US OpenPGP: https://keybase.io/bk2204
