Sounds like you are saying that you can pile a new command on top of
new command to solve what the existing tools people are familar with
can already solve in a consistent way without adding anything new.
Are you going to dupliate various options to "git diff" and "git
log" in "git diff-link"?  Will you then next need "git log-link"?
